AX 0 Reputation points


I have a problem with the Web app (B1) of azure, when I want to host a solution for example wordpress, the page for the configuration appears well but after having informed my information of database I have a page which appears with "404 Not Found", I tested with another solution, same thing. Do you have any idea what the problem is?

Thanks in advance.

    @AX, Firstly, Apologies for the delayed response. Based on the issue description, I understand that you are experiencing a 404 error for your WordPress site hosted on Azure Web App.

    If you haven't done, you may leverage App Service diagnostics from Azure Portal> Navigate to your App Service app in the Azure Portal.

    In the left navigation, click on Diagnose and solve problems - Review - “Configuration and Management and “Availability and Performance” options.

    Kindly ensure that the required file content is available in the root. On App Service: The wp-config.php files can be updated using either Kudu console or FTP Client (such as FileZilla).

    1. Browse to Kudu : http://”yoursitename”.scm.azurewebsites.net.

    Example: if your Azure App Service Web App name is “testwebapp”, then surf to http://testwebapp.scm.azurewebsite.net

    1. Click ‘Debug Console’ and select ‘CMD’ : Traverse to wwwroot folder
    2. For WordPress, update wp-config.php

    -make necessary changes, and save.


    Kindly let us know, I'll follow-up with you.
