PHP not installed on Host's servers

Recommended Posts

I know this is probably a stupid question and I believe I know the answer. My Host doesn't have PHP installed on it's servers (don't ask why) and they will not install it on their servers. They claim that ASP is better and will not use anything else but that. Maybe it is, maybe it isn't, I really don't care. Is there any work around for this besides learning a new language that I have not tackled yet?

I am only wanting to use PHP for the [b]<?php include("menu.inc"); ?>[/b] function so I do not have to change over 200 pages everytime my boss wants me to add a new link in the menu. Although it is job security if I do it the hard way. lol.

Any easy way to do this in ASP?

Two choices for you:

#1 - learn ASP [productivity decline while you learn]
#2 - move your business to a web host that can deliver what you want [no extra cost to your boss]

Yeah, the host I use for my personal sites all include PHP and a ton of other features for very low costs. For some reason though, my boss won't let me switch to a different host. And he is paying over $1000 per year for a host that doesn't do basic stuff like PHP. pisses me off. I had to raise hell when the company wouldn't even provide a server that would allow streaming video. I had to do all that with FLV to get around it. I hate stupid hosts and stupid bosses. Why can't technically knowledgable people rule the world? It would be so much easier.

If all your looking for is the include() functionality, the asp equivelent is...
[code]
<!--#include file="yourfile.html"-->
[/code]
