My advice is (for mvc projects only) is to spend the time you have
upgrading to MVC 6, and rewriting any code not compatible with .net core.
Then just run it in core clr (or whatever it's called now).

I've successfully run websites in MVC 5 with apache mod_mono, but given up
as core is the way things are going.  If you're greenfield, use that.  If
not, and you're not using lots of third party libraries, spend the time
rewriting those in compatible bits.

I can recommend https://icanhasdot.net/ for giving you an idea of how close
to being Core compatible you are.
