Do Azure web sites require ASP.NET and/or MVC features? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I created a pretty bare bones web site, with no ASP.NET features, and have published it as an azure web site (

    Unfortunately, even after hours, all I get from that site, although it appears to be running and published with no errors, is a page that says, "This web site has been successfully created. There's nothing here yet, but ...."

    Could it be that Azure is expecting something fancier than my site, and is confused by a package that only contains a couple of references in the HTML to CDNs and a single js file, as well as a single CSS file?

    Does it require that a site/app require/reference ASP.NET and/or MVC-specific features, or what?

    My site runs fine in local IIS from Visual Studio 2013.

    The web page that you see such as the following link.

     I suggest you direct with the specific page that you want such as, refer to for more information.

    A web site’s default document is the web page that is displayed when a user navigates to a web site and does not specify a particular page on the web site. So given the web site, if the default document is set to default.htm, a user would be routed to when pointing their browser to If your web site contains more than one of the files in the list, then make sure your web site’s default document is at the top of the list by changing the order of the files in the list.

    Hope this helps, if this didn’t give you any help, please feel free to let me know.

    Best Regards
