    What's involved in converting ASP to PHP

    I'm picking up a new client. Their site is currently built in ASP. How hard is it to convert it to html/php/mysql? The site only has 7 pages and I really can't imagine that it actually has any database functionality.

    You never *really* convert, you understand the current usage and rebuild it. So, given that, if you think you can reproduce the current site you should be good to go.

    Thanks for the quick reply. That's kind of what I thought when I said conversion. It looks like a simple enough site that I could just recreate.

    Well, from my experience in taking some ASP (classic ASP) sites and converting them to PHP is this: You can expect the server side code to be a lot more concise and short by the time your done

    It should be pretty easy, especially for just a 7 pager. It's probably ASP just to take advantage of includes if there's no database, which can be redone with PHP really easily.
