Deploy Kentico 8 to Azure

giang le asked on January 7, 2016 10:46

Hi all,

Today, I want to deploy my website Kentico 8.2 to Azure but I could not select Kentico 8 on Azure gallery because it was be updated to Kentico 9 (as image below). So can I deploy my website to Azure without upgrade my project to Kentico 9.

Yes you can! Deploy it from Visual Studio or FTP and you'll be set. Only real big difference is you will have to setup the pieces in Azure prior to deploying the code and database to Azure whereas deploying it from the Gallery will do most of it for you.

Here is some documentation

Joel Dahlin also has a 2-part post on how to do this, step by step.

Also, from your screen shot, you are attempting to deploy to Azure using the Azure Marketplace. When you select this option, Azure will spin up a Web App and install Kentico 9 on it. Once you hit the site, it will guide you through creating a DB for the site. The idea of this option is to allow people to stand up a new Kentico installation in Azure with little hassle.

In your case, you have an existing 8.2 application you want to deploy. To do this, you will want to create your Web App manually and deploy to it via Visual Studio or FTP.

This page will give you instructions on how to deploy a Web App using all types of methods. Just select the one most appropriate for you.
