Azure Web App GDAL Support

Todd Player 0 Reputation points


I have a Python / Django / Postgres / PostGIS application I was trying to run on an Azure App Service. The problem I am having is with GDAL. This is on Linux not Windows. I get an error when the app starts that it cannot find the GDAL libraries. I have tried a number of approaches to try to fix it, including adding a startup command "apt-get update && apt-get -y install binutils libproj-dev gdal-bin". The startup command seems to work correctly and install GDAL and the other components but then the app just fails to start reporting an unknown error. This leads me to think that GDAL might not be supported under the Azure App Service but I wanted to check and see if anyone else might have figured this out.
