I know folks have the best at heart, but he's looking for ASP on Apache,
not ASP alternatives. Dumping Apache for IIS is painful, but retraining
a team of developers to use similar but (lets not kid ourselves) entirely
different technology is far more painful and costly. When faced with the
choice to retrain an entire team or switch webservers, a smart manager
is going to choose switching webservers. If you don't like that, feel
free to present a business case the gentleman can use that makes it
affordable and in the best interests of the business.

Aside from that, all of the common ASP on Apache solutions have been
offered by folks on the list.
