    How to upgrade Umbraco 7 to 8 in Azure Web App

    Hi folks,

    I have a project to deploy a flexible load balanced website to Azure using Umbraco 8. And I stuck at the first task, install Umbraco 8 as a Azure Web App.

    I added Umbraco CMS as a Web App in Azure, but it's V7.12. Our target is V8. I tried to upload V8.zip via FTP to the site\repository, refresh the site to trigger a installation, but it's still 7.12 after that. Tried clicking sync in deployment center, it seems 7.12 is the latest version Azure uses. We don't have VS, so not possible to use NuGet. Do you know how to perform the upgrading?

    My next try will be: create a empty web app in azure, FTP V8.zip and see if it will install.

    Thanks!

    Will

    Hey Will, there is not an upgrade path to go from v7 to v8, there will be a migration path in the future: https://our.umbraco.com/documentation/Umbraco8FAQ#will-it-be-possible-to-upgrade-automatically-from-umbraco-7-to-umbraco-8

    Thanks Sebastiaan! So if Umbraco 8 is not available in Azure Market, and we don't have VS, do you know how to install Umbraco 8 as a Web app on Azure? What's I'm thinking is creating a empty WebApp and then use NuGet.exe in CLI to install it. Not sure if it will work or not. Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Hey Sebastiaan,

    Were you successful? I also wanted to try to install v8 in Azure. I haven't tried yet though.
