asp in mysql db field
My colleague is trying to make a database driven web site. He is using asp and mysql with phpmyadmin. He just found out today that a text field that has asp <% if session("OK") = true then.... %> does not work. The asp code just displays.
Shouldn't the web server be able to parse the asp from this field? Is there something that can be done or is it a no go?
Actually, I guess anything in <% %> does not show at all. php doesn't seem to work either. Interesting.
the server does not parse the text you retrieve from a database and output to the browser. it only parses the ASP file that is being executed.
