  • will the new files uploaded via ftp persist on VM restarts/reimage?

  • Usefull tips. I searched around and I do not see anywhere that you need to put the website name prior to the login like that site_name\username.

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    I have tried it and it doesn´t work. You have to download your "Publishingprofile" and have to use the username and Password which is configured in the XML. See the following link:

  • Great guide! I prefer mapping the FTP site as a network drive so you don't need a special client. See this site: revision3.com/.../hak5gtae5

  • I ve deployed a nopCommerce site using the gallery. Now i want to download the sourcecode to make changes and then sync them to my site. This site helped me connect to the site from FTP but now i need a path to get source code. Any help?

  • Has anyone got this working with SFTP?  It is not working for me...

  • Is it possible to create a user without backslash?

  • I had a problem with my dev machine and needed to download my files from my azure site. AvKash's description of FTP on Azure worked perfectly. Thanks, AvKash!
