    Connecting and Managing MySQL of Windows Azure

    • 0 Comments

    Windows Azure provides the MySQL database but unfortunately we do not have any portal feature to work with the MySQL database associated with the Windows Azure WebSite. There is always a way,

    Let’s assume I have created a WebSite which has MySQL. For example I have created the website from gallery and selected the WordPress which comes with MySQL database. So I will have a MySQL database with it and I can read the connection string from the portal.

    And the connection string would look like something

    Database=wrijuwpA55ISymtc;Data Source=us-cdbr-azure-northcentral-a.cleardb.com;User Id=UserName;Password=*******

    After I have it I can use any MySQL management tool to connect my database to it. I have tested it with MySQL Workbench.

    Then you are ready to work with your MySQL Database and manage through this tool.

    • 1 Comments

    I started getting this error after I had one Web Platform Installer download issue while updating my Windows Azure SDK 2.0. So I had uninstalled all the Windows Azure component from my control panel and was still getting “IISConfigurator.exe has stopped working”.

    I was trying a many things but some how when I changed the below and selected “IIS Management Console” it worked like a charm.

    Windows Azure Storage Explorer in Visual Studio 2012

    • 0 Comments

    After installing the new Windows Azure SDK 2.0 I am happy to see this new Server Explorer component which lets me connect and manipulate Windows Azure Storage Component.

    After I click there, I am able to associate the same management certificate which I have used to connect my Visual Studio 2012 for deployment.

    After I select the account it would show the available storages. And I can choose from them.

    image

    Once it is pointed, I will be able to browse individual elements like Blob, Queue and Table.

    image

    I can view the Table and also can add values there.

    This is really handy.
