Kentico on Azure

Kelly Shepard asked on April 16, 2015 16:50

From what I have read, in order to get my instance of Kentico out on Azure, I need to make the project an app, add Azure web role stuff and then publish out to an existing cloud service. Is it possible to just create a web app on Azure and FTP the contents of WWW (all of the Kentico files) to that location and modify the web.config accordingly? I have been trying this but keep running into different issues. I have the Kentico database all setup on Azure and have begun migrating our data....but I can't seem to get the site up and going.

Hi Kelly,

What you are referring to is the "native" way to deploy to Azure Cloud Services. This type of solution gives you some additional integration and features, but isn't the only way to go about it. You can also deploy to Azure Web Apps. If you do that, you can choose a web app or web site project. You can also FTP your files directly to the server, if you want.

Check out more about it here:

I also started a blog series about deploying to Azure Web Apps (new name for Azure Websites). You can check out Part 1 here.

Hope this helps!
