I have played with Apache and Mono and .NET on Linux in the past, but I have yet to deploy any significant production sites to that stack. I recently found Cherokee and an article about enabling FastCGI Mono support and wondered if anyone had any good or bad war stories about delivering ASP.NET on a Linux stack.

I ended up going to the [SuseGallery][1] and did a quick search for Mono and found [JEOS Mono ASP.net][2] which was already setup for what I wanted. I have just started using for some ASP.net migration trials on Windows with VirtualBox. I just needed to start Apache and set up port forwarding.

I will take that as a YMMV, test before you pay for hosting somewhere. :) About what I thought, just hoped for some first hand war stories. I guess I will just have to write them myself. – Larry Smithmier Jul 9 '10 at 21:43
