Downloading Instead of Loading Files

P: 26
Dearest Professionals, Please kindly assist me in this problem, though, I have checked other posts but couldn't understand the responses I got.
However, I use IIS 6 on my system to design .asp pages. The pages run OK on my system. I uploaded the pages to my site,, the pages do not RUN, rather, they download. But when I run .html files on the www.web server, they run. I do not understand this problem let alone knowing what the solution is: Please kindly assist me with this problem.

Thank you all.

Are you sure the host of your site has ASP installed?

I do not think so, but how can I verify? Because if I use .php extension, it also downloads the file...?

You would either look at their website to see if it's offered or call them up and ask them. Not all web hosts offer ASP or PHP. Some offer one and some offer none. Sometimes it's free, sometimes you have to pay extra for it. It's all up to the host, you have to contact them to find out.
