PHP or ASP?
I prefer PHP.
i like triangles.
Low - Middle budget clients: PHP, Ruby
High budget clients: ASP, Java
If you are hosting on Linux then PHP (even if pseudo ASP might be available)
If it's Windows hosting, then probably ASP, although PHP *may* be more suited depending on what you're doing - if you are windows hosted now though you'd probably go for .net which is very nice (although I do still love classic asp)
The one you know how to code the best is the best one to use.
-- or which ever you are interested in learning.
I'm Open Source so Apache & PHP everytime for me...
i prefer php. it's very good for me
php all the way, community supported non microsoft product, need i say more lol... the day microsoft learn how to render a web page correctly is the day i will learn asp.
how is knowledge of asp relevant to html rendition? bottom line: both asp and php output the same. if you don't know how to do html/css so that it renders cross browser, then what different does it make what pre-processing language you like?
the best tool for the job - there are things you cannot do on a lamp system. there are also marketing "tools" - people that have the habit of listening to crap like ".net is the latest", they come to you and they go "can we also get the latest .net?" and then you answer, no, microsoft is crap, what you really need is a free open source system. a hard sale...
personally, i know very little asp but i am not naive enough to dismiss it out of hand.
I prefer PHP most.
you missed my drift there a tad, knowing php without knowing css & html dosnt happen does it and if it does then your early on in your web dev journey, i was making a light hearted comment that should of conveyed a sesne of non confidence in a microsoft product, giving favour to the open source lang php
theres also stuff you cant do on windows aswell... prime example... money_format() wont work on windows
you having a bad day?
i do know enough asp to know i hate it, thats not being naive as i know i dont like from experience... so cant be nieve to the pros and cons... lots and lots of high demand services are done in php aswell... and as one person said here the best tool is what you know... for me php
oh sorry, it just does not come across like so, with nouns like 'hate' and the likes... it seems immature. don't get me wrong, i am all for PHP, it's been my bread and butter for a very long time now. what good can come out from a head-to-head comparison of personal preferences, it's like asking if you prefer white or black, coffee or tea: "I've drunk enough tea to know that I hate it"
heh, if you plan on running PHP then you may as well go to LAMP, i don't think IIS/Apache on win32 vs *nix is an issue here. number_format is your friend!
quite, you don't know the half of it...
totally agree, and yeah my English isnt the best... im dyslexic... not a excuse but dint pay attention in English class you know what uk schools are like lol
hope your day gets better dimitar
p.s sorry for being confrontational, its my bday and i dislike them alot... today is my yearly bad day lol
PHP is used more over ASP. I prefer PHP.
I prefer Php, because it's free and widely supported for many functions.Php is good server-side scripting language and it's the best general purpose web language.
Both languages have their advantages
Both languages have their advantages specific to users. Some would argue that both the languages have their own importance and depending on the user's requirements the language and the platform can be chosen. If we talk about developing a discussion board then ASP is equally capable but many feel the best discussion boards are developed in PHP. If a user is looking for some e-commerce application development then many would call ASP the ideal choice. This does not mean that PHP cannot provide e-commerce solutions, only that many people choose ASP.
For me, PHP is good but I prefer ASP since I know a little bit more on ASP than PHP. However, as far as I believe, both are good.
well i prefer PHP
I also like PHP, i find it to be more adaptable and i just love using it.
ASP does have some nice features and can work well but PHP is more support because you can use it on Linux and Windows Servers, when ASP; I believe can only be used on Windows Servers, or on Linux with a lot of configuration.
