ASP vs PHP??? and why?? newcomer

Hello...

I'm new to this forum and new into the more dynamic realms of web programming. I need some help. I have a hip hop web site I'm working on. I want to create the site mostly as a template, so the navigation links and anything else that should stay static on the sides stays static. and I also want to be able to post news on my site. I'm just starting to work on this and i was wondering the best way to go about this....

here's some examples of what i'm talking about from other sites:

URL (in php)
URL (in php)

Like I said, I'm a newcomer. what is the advantages of asp vs php for doing sites like these? and what is some good online documentation to go about developing sites similar to these?

thanx in advance

All serverside languages do the same task, its just the way that they do it. You would have to learn them all to decide which one you like working with best, its mostly a matter of preference.

Id say ASP/VB is probably easier to learn, but wont give you a very good grounding in programming because its syntax is very different to other languages.

Heck why not just get away from the argument and go with JSP, thats what I do =)

Heres some links you can learn from:

PHP: PHP Builder

ASP: ASP Resource Index

JSP: JSP Resource Index

Theres also an article titled "Building a threaded news system" in the php section on this site.

Hope this helps

I think PHP is better than ASP because it can run on any server, not like asp that can only run on windows(cept for that chilly asp or something? it really isn't anything like asp in my opinion) PHP is much stronger and faster that asp, and I know it might sounds weird(maybe even very weird ) but I had alot less bugs with PHP than with ASP(where everything bugged on me all the time).

Why not ASP.NET/C#?

I started with ASP and while it can do a lot if you really want power you should move towards Microsoft's new .NET technologies.

I now program ASP.NET (the technology) with C# (the programming language) and IMHO it is the best choice. Currently not as many ISPs support ASP.NET although there are LOTS who do (I can host it for you if you like).

The difference between using ASP/PHP/JSP or .NET/ASP.NET is like the difference between using DOS or Windows (sort of). Sure ASP/PHP/JSP can do (almost) everything ASP.NET can do but the difference in speed, maintainability, development time and cost is very significant.

My argument is that if you can you should learn ASP.NET (start at www.asp.net and www.gotdotnet.com/quickstart).
If you can't and you want something easy learn ASP.
If you want to learn something you can use on virtually any server then learn PHP.
JSP isn't as common as the other 2 so there isn't as much material online for it (if I'm not mistaken).

Also, while ASP.NET is only supported on MS based servers at the moment there are 2 projects under way that will have it supported by all servers probably within the year (www.go-mono.com and www.dotgnu.com), very possibly even sooner.

Hope that helps.

You made some nice points Vantera,

I myself have actually been reading up about the .NET platform today, whilst downloading the framework. It looks very interesting and I shall be learning it intensively over the next coming weeks.

However, Remember J2EE, JSP doesnt have to be alone. J2EE is just as scalable, maintainable and fast as .NET. Im not trying to start a debate over J2EE/.NET just stating an alternative to .NET

Money and time are the two issues I see. PHP has a ton of free webcontainers to serve it, ASP has a few also but Windows 2K and XP Pro comes with both a server and container for ASP. If you have either of these OS' then its probably more convenient to just start a dev server on your own machine then export your ASP code to your host when its working.

You can do the same thing with PHP, you just have to set it all up. Also PHP has containers fro many different platforms and webservers in the case that you don't have either of the affor mentioned windows OS'.

Another thing to think about is this: PHP is a newer technology then ASP. Microsoft has already moved on to ASPX and .NET and C# for their next generation. That doesn't mean that you should rule out ASP, but if your Hip Hop page takes off and ends up being highly used and in operation for the next 5 years, you may find that ASP support will run out on you as everyone moves to the latest and greatest. Over a long enough peroid of time the same can be said for any technology though. On the other hand, ASP being older probably means that there is more help available for it on the net.

So in summary:

ASP: Built in server/container on some windows OS'
Older

PHP: Requires your own set up of a server/container to run
Newer

I think both of them have easy syntax and a fairly large array of built in objects and utilities so I would say that is a wash.

Not that there is a correct answer to why this is better than that. There are different ways to do it, so it is more of a what fits better question.
Personally I found out a long time ago that it's generally easier to just grab a free CMS (Context Management System) or any other software for that matter and just hack it to fit my needs. It is much faster to do it that way, and if you are a beginner it generally saves you from a lot of common mistakes such as database normalization faults, lost update issues or the dining philosophers issue (if you're threading).

I just thought I should mention perl/mod_perl since noone else has.
IMHO I find that no language is "easier" then another, asp (basic like) syntax might be easier to learn, but being basic often don't provide you with the level of control that other languages provide you with at your fingertips. I can write a 4 line perl cgi script that does the same function as a 50+ line php script and they have CPAN (ww.cpan.org) which means that most functions are allready done for you, not matter how obscure they might be. You could say it is a lot easier to write and maintain 4 lines of code, but most people find perl cryptic.

To sum up: The solution for you is what fits better, wether that be php + postgreSQL, asp + oracle or simply managing it all in a out of the box CMS or even a Wiki.

PHP is better than ASP.

ASP and PHP are both programming languages that are commonly used to create websites. Unlike the usual static html web pages, ASP and PHP websites are more dynamic and can allow users to interact and exchange information using the website's databases.

PHP is better than ASP... Because PHP codes runs much quicker than ASP basically because it runs in its very own memory space while ASP uses an overhead server and is uses a COM based architecture.

PHP stand for Hypertext Preprocessor and ASP stand for active Server Pages and both are the two most popular means for building web applications. Many people believe that these two programming languages could be used interchangeably.

I recommend ASP.Net is the best because it is more secure than any other language but PHP is easy as compare to ASP.Net.They are used to develop dynamic websites.

I personally would go with PHP, I started out with Native ASP and found so many limitations that PHP handled far better. Easy to use and can be easily installed on Linux OR Window based servers.

If you're calling functions into your page that works fine, I personally use (URL address blocked) as a reference for coding many different languages. YouTube is also a good resource. You can also get cheap web hosting through (URL address blocked) with everything setup all you need to do is upload your files and refresh the page.

Resources (Sorry they got blocked)
www dot w3schools dot com
www dot dedicatedgaming dot com dot au
www dot youtube dot com

Hope this helps you.
