Does Azure App Service support ASP.NET 4.6.1 version?

Stefanos Evangelou 106 Reputation points

I need to deploy n ASP.NET 4.6.1 application into Azure App Service. Currently only ASP.NET 3.5 and ASP.NET 4.8 seem to be available options in the Azure portal. Is this a hard requirement, i.e. is it mandatory to update my ASP.NET solutions to 4.8 version prior to deploying to Azure App Service?

    Hi @Stefanos Evangelou ,

    You should be fine deploying your 4.6.1 app to ASP.NET 4.8 runtime app service instance as .NET v4.x are backwards compatible. Have a look at, but should you run into issues, should help direct you to correcting any issues.
