ASP Style Tags Disabled ??

Hi all.

I'm trying to install concrete5, but I get the error ASP Style Tags Disabled

I know the error means i'm supposed to disable it, however, my host doesn't support ASP

and I cannot continue the install due to this check fail.

How can I by-pass the ASP check?

Help would be greatly appreciated

You really need to disable that option, not doing so can cause unexpected issues with concrete5 and possible security issues as well.

Thanks for the reply, much appreciated.

I understand I need to disable that option. I wrote to my host provider and received this reply,

Our server is not supporting ASP style configs. Because server is configured as cpanel and its supporting scripts are perl/php/python and not supporting ASP.

If they don't support ASP, how do I disable the option?

Any ideas welcome

I wrote back to my host provider and received further help.

They changed php.ini to asp tags off by placing a php.ini file containing
asp_tags = Off
in my root folder.

I had already tried asp_tags = Off using ini_set which didn't work.
I didn't know I could add a php.ini file (not too familiar with the rules of how servers work)

Anyway, it worked so problem solved
