Hi Team,

We have deployed the nodejs code in the Node 14 Azure app service.

while updating the webconfig file from the Advanced tools option in the azure portal, I am getting access denied

409 Conflict: Could not write to local resource 'C:\home\site\wwwroot\kca-mnl\web.config' due to error 'Access to the path is denied.'.

Please let me know how webconfig file can be update in the azure portal permanently.

    Hi@Deshmukh, Vijit thanks for the question.

    To clarify you are using KUDU to update webconfig file? is this a production workload? Did you deployed your files through run from package? if yes, this means your folder is set as Read Only.

    0 means write mode and 1 is read-only mode

    You can try to redeploy your app or change the setting WEBSITE_RUN_FROM_PACKAGE value from 1 to 0 via the Azure portal in the configuration Blade.

    when you change the value to 0 you should go back to KUDU and doublecheck D:\home\site\wwwroot

    please see this blog post for more infomation:

    NOTE: keep in mind that following this process will reset your webapp to initial state - all your deployed code, assets and all will be removed.

    Please let us know if you have more questions.
