reasonable information technology management practices
In the question, I am setting up a local instance of Classic ASP to migrate massively aging architecture. This is a good thing. There are plenty of companies on extreme legacy hardware that needs to be migrated, some of it Classic ASP, and for people that have to deal with the annoying task of rewriting old codebases, like myself right now - questions like this have utility.
I never, in the question, suggest running Classic ASP is a smart idea - I think it's a terrible idea, and I have told the company in question this in no uncertain terms, which is why they have hired me to migrate it. But I can't change the fact that that's what they're currently running, or that I need to run Classic ASP locally temporarily to ensure that the migration is correct and doing everything the old code did.
