Introduction

With just a few mouse clicks the Windows Web Application Gallery lets you select, download and install popular web applications like blogs, content management systems, wikis or media galleries onto Azure. The following FAQ describes additional information that you may need when you are configuring several popular applications on Azure.

DotNetNuke Community and Professional Editions:

The database information must be re-entered to complete installation of DotNetNuke. You can view this information in the dashboard of your newly created site on the right side.

Once you have the database information, in the Database configuration step of DotNetNuke install wizard enter this database information as seen below

Acquia Drupal and Drupal Commerce:

Once either of these apps are deployed; the app runtime installer needs to run. Please click on the "Setup" icon to continue the installation.

If "Setup" is not clicked and you browse the site you may see this error. This occurs since the app is not configured yet. To resolve this append install.php to the URL and run this script; for example http://mysitename.azurewebsites.net/install.php

Umbraco CMS
