Existing Azure website change of Azure account RRS feed

Answers

  • Do I understand correctly that you do not have the (source) files to simply do another publish to a different account in a different web sites instance? If you are using Visual Studio you only need to select a different account (deploy profile) and click publish.

    If you want to retrieve or retain files created within you website instance you might be able to use the backup feature and download the zip file created in the configured storage account. That should contain all your website assets.

    Deleting the current site will free up the DNS aaaa.azurewebsites.net from that point on you can redeploy using another account and reclaim aaaa.azurewebsites.net, is that a scenario you considered but for some reason does not fit your needs?

    Hope this was useful in any way.

  • When you delete your Azure Website from f.e. the portal you automatically make aaaa.azurewebsites.net available to anyone who wants to claim it. After you have deleted the website you should be able to create a new website with that same domain name prefix.

    The red exclamation mark should turn into a green check sign.

    As far as I know you can't swap account from under a running websites without doing some scripting (powershell) or walking through the steps of downloading assets and recreating the website in a different account.

  • Thanks for you reply Valery Jacobs.

    I do have source control in the TFS Cloud, I can publish using my new account.

    But I am not sure of the step of regaining aaaa.azurewebsites.net to my new account. If this regaining is possible then this solution I can make use of it.

    Do you have detailed steps how can delete, regain the same URL, so that I can give a try.

    Also is there a way to swap the existing Azure account with the different account so that we can get rid of the regaining the same URL issue.
