Describes how to show ASP.NET-sites under Apache by using Mod_Mono.

From Mod_Mono's site:

"Mod_Mono is an Apache 2.0/2.2 module that provides ASP.NET support for the web's favorite server, Apache ("


The setup requires mono and mono_mod for Apache compliance. Package xsp is a simple webserver for ASP.NET, optionally installed for testing the configuration.

 pacman -S mono mod_mono xsp


Edit /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf and add the following line:

 Include /etc/httpd/conf/mod_mono.conf

Finally, restart apache with:

 systemctl restart httpd.service

Now, Apache should be able to show ASP.NET-pages.


Further details:

With this setting, configuring apache for each deployment is no longer needed; just place the application in any directory within html-root and it will be promptly auto-configured. Add the following lines to /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf to enable the option:

 # Choose ASP2.0 support instead of the default 1.0
 MonoServerPath "/usr/bin/mod-mono-server2"
 MonoAutoApplication enabled


If xsp is installed and html-path is /httpd/html, then open a browser and access http://server/xsp/ to see an overview over the ASP.NET-testfiles.
