I'm not an expert, but from my own experience they run pretty much the
same. An ASP.NET app compiled under Visual Studio will run under
Mono/Linux and at close to the same speed.
Our application uses .NET 2.0 so all of the library objects we use have
been implemented under Mono. You may want to check out their library
documentation or just run your app to find out. You can't assume all of
the System library has been written yet, though I've found the Dev team
pretty responsive to requests for missing pieces.
One item I've found is that Web.config settings do not inherit
properties from parent folders, so if you use a hierarchy of
applications you may have to set up the Web.config at each level.
When setting up an ASP.NET application, install Apache2 and mono-server4
on your Debian/Linux server. You don't need to configure anything under
Apache, rather, just add a configuration folder and file under
/etc/mono-server4/conf.d, specify the path= and alias= parameters then
restart the server using the mod_mono control panel (located at
Depending on the location of your executables, you may need to fiddle
with security permissions to allow user www-data access to the folder.
Also, if you use any authenticated access to your application, you may
need to rework or rethink it. Windows integrated authentication is not
available, but alternatives are.
