Hi there,

Is it possible to use this tool to create a site within Azure Web Site's? (Not cloud service)

Reason I ask is that I want to install the dnn site to a specific azure storage account, not the default location that is used when installing a dnn site via the azure GUI.

Thanks in advance & for all the work put into this tool.

Sorry, I missed this discussion, but hey, better late than never :)

It's not possible. I could modify the accelerator to deploy on WAWS as an option, but that would never install the dnn site contents inside a storage account. WA Websites uses another technology, the same that is delivered for onpremise deployments via the Windows Azure Pack for Windows Server (you can read more about it here http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/server-cloud/products/windows-azure-pack/), so the site contents are always stored on a file system server.

BTW, to me, this is one of the advantages of using WAWS vs Cloud Services. Why you want to do that?
