A return, with hosting in Azure Websites

So, it turns out that deployment of WordPress in Azure Websites is as easy as one could hope.

Exporting all posts from my previous hosting was simple via the wp_admin page’s Tools/Export plugin (once I deleted all pending comments). Then, I upped the maximum upload file size by adding a .user.ini file to the root of the application via WebMatrix, with the following:

upload_max_filesize = 10M

After that, it was a matter of uploading the rest of the site via FTPS. I’m now interested in moving all media to blob storage, but that can come later.
