How to Migrate WordPress to Azure (Full Guide)


Thomas , CA – Also forced me into another year after I cancelled – They too forced me into another year after I called to cancel my renewal. They recently switched their servers and lost all of their agreements and automatically billed any expired domains. After 4 phone calls and 11 emails they told me “too bad, read the terms of service”. Terrible customer service, will not own up to their mistakes and nickle and dime every account they have. Stay away.

    Hi! Great Intro. Thank you. Question: Is this considered as a PaaS install? Reason is i saw you still access the VM. My main intention is just to manage the wordpress site and leave the patching/hardening (VM & DB) to service provider.

    What a lot of value there is in your video, I congratulate you for that.
    Can you explain how to configure the HTTPS protocol?
    Thanks!

    Thanks. I need to move several wp sites from a vps to azure where I have everything thing else. Perhaps you can discuss mx records with the domain section. Personally, still having a hard time trying to form an image of what azure really is. But, if I create a vps on azure for hosting can I create multiple wp domains there?
