    Hosting umbraco on Azure Production / Staging

    Hi, I followed this post on how to install Umbraco locally, Azure production and Azure staging. https://sunithamk.wordpress.com/2015/08/05/using-umbraco-cms-with-multiple-environments-on-azure-app-service/

    I got a bit confused as explained below with steps:

    • I created a new umbraco solution locally
    • I published app to Azure (Using Web.config transformation for the Connection String)
    • I installed Umbraco locally w/ clean installation no Starter Kits
    • I installed Umbraco on Azure w/ clean installation no Starter Kits
    • I created a new Deployment Slot (selected copy settings from the production one)
    • I created a new Database to use for staging
    • I published files to Azure Staging (I have created a specific Web.config transformation for the Connection String)

    Now, when I browse the staging website, Umbraco is already installed! How come? Did VS also publish the database when I published to Staging? Or did the deployment slot copy the database? Or what?

    Many thanks,

    /Bilal

    Hi Bilal,

    Yes, you are right. VS publishes db, you can disable this functionality during the publishing.

    Thanks,

    Alex

    Hi Alex.

    I noticed that this feature in VS to Publish SQL is disabled already.

    However, I discovered that when I was creating a new staging DB on Azure, I chose to create a new DB out of Backup :). At that time I selected the production database! My bad.

    Thanks for support.
