I am running several WordPress websites and I run them on several different hosters, now in the past months I migrated some of them to Microsoft Azure using the Azure Web Apps. In this post you can see how you can migrate a smiple WordPress blog to Microsoft Azure.

First you have to have a Microsoft Azure account and login to the Microsoft Azure Portal. You can now create a new website from gallery, where you can choose WordPress as an option.

You can than start configuring the WordPress website and set it up to use a new database and where it should be located.

To be able to upload themes and plugins you have to enable FTP for you account. In you can do this by changing the deployment credentials.

Now what you can to migrate your existing blog to your new Microsoft Azure blog, you can export your WordPress blog and import in in the new WordPress blog running on Windows Azure. In my case I hit a issue with a PHP default setting which was maxupload limited to 2MB, and my WordPress blog export file was bigger than 2MB. Now you can simply change the PHP setting by using a .user.ini..
