Adding Dynamic Content to a Web Site 927 Views
Server-side scripting, however, does require support from the web server. The choice of which method to use is dependant on the operating system that the web host’s servers are using. A Unix/Linux-based server normally offers support for PHP and Perl, whereas a Windows-based server will support ASP. There are ways to enable a Windows-based server to run PHP or Perl, or vice versa, but in order to ensure full compliance, it is normally best to run the language on the operating system for which it was developed. This may also have other implications as well. If you are planning to use a database, for example, you will need to ensure compatibility with that. Make sure that your choice of web hosting can supply all of your needs, or you just find that adding dynamic content is a waste of your time and resources.
