DNN as Azure App Service

    Hello, I'm trying to get DNN up and running on Azure.  The site was built locally and with my Azure account, I created an App Service.  The DNN website files were uploaded to Azure.  I also have a SQL Server instance on Azure.  I am getting this error in the DNN log file:

    2019-11-01 00:04:16.629+00:00 [RD00155D7DD486][D:2][T:7][ERROR] DotNetNuke.Common.Initialize - The connection to the database has failed, however, the application is already completely installed, a 500 error page will be shown to visitors

    In Azure, I have granted the App Service rights to the SQL Server database in the firewall settings (adding the IP of the App Service under Firewall rules).

    I also changed the web.config connectionStrings/SiteSqlServer node to point to the Azure SQL Server.  I am able to connect to the Azure SQL server successfully with the same credentials I have in the web.config file.

    Is there anyone out there that has been able to get DNN running as an App Service in Azure?  If so, any ideas what I may be missing?

    Thanks, Al

      This info is a bit old, but most should still be valid: https://www.dnnsoftware.com/community-blog/cid/154975/moving-a-dnn-install-to-microsoft-azure-websites

      And there are some YouTube videos that cover this too.
