Microsoft Learn - Create a website hosted in Azure

Janelle Carter 1 Reputation point


I am trying to complete a Microsoft Learn Exercise "Create a website hosted in Azure" in order to study for the AZ-900 Azure Fundamentals exam.

The exercise is here:

The options I get when configuring the WordPress website are not the same as what appears in the exercise, and when I go to review I get an error message that the template deployment failed with multiple errors. The resources were disallowed by policies 'app-service-sku-policy' and 'Allowed resource types'

I completed this exercise with no issues back in May, tried it again in October and I'm getting these errors. I wonder if Word Press has changed their app in the Azure Marketplace and it no longer work with the tutorial?

    Microsoft Certification Program is supported on their own forums. I'd try asking for help with course issues in dedicated forums here. (Participate\Ask A Question)

    Hi Patrick,

    I'm sorry I had to "unaccept" your answer as there is a comedy of errors going on here of which I am the principal star.

    I have an issue with a self-guided course at

    1. I asked for help in this Microsoft Learn forum, you tell me to post the question in the Microsoft Certification Program forums - fair enough
    2. I ask for help in the Microsoft Certification Program forum, as you can see here:
      The Microsoft Certification Program people tell me to email
      1. I email, and I get:

    "Thank you for contacting ESI support team.

    Please follow the below steps to submit a ticket for Student Azure Pass related issues.
    Login to the Azure Portal using the MSA/Org ID" blah blah blah

    What follows is steps on how to log my problem SOMEWHERE ELSE
    Which even if I wanted to follow I couldn't because the screenshots are blurry even when downloaded fully
    And I don't have a Student Pass

    PLEASE can Microsoft please confirm who deals with issues with this course?

    As mentioned, this tutorial worked for me a few months ago, and I suspect the example they are using with the Word Press app has changed and might no longer actually work. So it may not be an issue with my account.

    Further to the problems found with this exercise. The end point to the exercise using the original link
    has been removed?

    Do you think this solves the problem?

    Hmm, we couldn't find this link, but here are some related search results that may be helpful.

    The page has now an auto-forward to another page.
    Still the page is not working and so finishing of the course is not possible.
