Cannot connect to Azure from WebMatrix RRS feed

  • Question

  • User810248950 posted

    I cannot publish my site using WebMatrix 3.  If I click on Publish and choose "create a new site", it shows the error "we could not connect to Windows Azure".

    However, if I select "Choose an existing site from windows azure", it shows the error message "Failed to get Windows Azure websites"

    Any work around?

    Go to the Azure portal, then to your website. Find the link to download the publishprofile.

    Get it.

    Inside WebMatrix:

    click on remote tab

    click on setting

    select "import publish profile"

    point to the file you just downloaded.
