  1. [Linux] In "Drupal on Linux Web App with MySQL" it doesn't allow you to use local on instance DB but template states it have local MYSQL DB

    Either the template is having some issues or it's wrongly stated in the template and local MySQL DB is not available in this template.
    In either case, you need to correct either the template or template description.

      [Linux] We previously did support local mysql but there were some reliability issues. Hence we are re-working the image to support local mysql inorder to support drupal on linux with local mysql
      The description has been updated to remove local mysql for now to reflect this.

    • [Linux] Ability to move a Web App to a different App Service plan

      Enable the 'Change App Service Plan' blade for Linux web apps in order to allow Linux apps to be moved to a different App Service plan in the way Windows apps can be moved now.

            • Aggregated logs for Linux App Service instances

              To access logs for my Linux App Service instance i have to go to myapp.scm.azurewebsites.net/api/logs/docker and it lists all the instances i have running with a link to the log file for each node. This is cumbersome when trying to debug an issue. Could we have an option under diagnostic logs to target a storage Table and have these aggregated as one source

                I would like to migrate my existing azure app service web app (running on windows) to new app service Web App on Linux. Now I try to do it through backup and restore and the contents are not copied to the linux web app.

                  Thanks for that suggestion, can you please submit a support request to investigate why backup and restore didn’t copy the contents to the new linux web app.
                  Note that backup and restore doesn’t move the *.azurewebsites.net hostname.

                  Ahmed,
                  App Service Team

                  • azure service environment (ASE) needs container support

                    You recently announced general availability for the new azure App Service in Linux and Web Apps for Containers. However, I can't get them to work inside my Azure Service Environment V2.0, I found a menu item to allow me to add an Azure App Service in Linux to my ASE, and I initially specified a docker container, but looking at the construct after that reveals the container is gone and the thing was neutered to a generic webapp.
                    Please enable your azure web apps with containers in ASE. These are, after all, just another variant of a webapp, and ASE…

                    • Linux / Docker for ASE

                      We are using ASE and would like to deploy Web Apps using docker containers with linux to be able to run NodeJS applications on Azure.

                      For now, with our configuration, there is a limitation => we can only deploy NodeJS applications on Windows with IIS, not docker/linux.

                      We need linux too ! <3

                      • Linux Static Site on Nginx

                        One of the most common web techniques today is static generated web sites. Ideally, there would be an option along with Node, Php etc for Static HTML. This would allow configuration for just running Nginx web servers to host static sites.

                        • [Azure web app LINUX] VSTS deploy to slot

                          Currently I am using VSTS for my CI/CD to azure web app linux
                          However, unfortunately, there's still a pretty significant downtime for every deployment.

                          I tried to create a staging slot to minimize the downtime, and swap to production. however, VSTS doesn't allow me to deploy to my staging slot.

                          I created a github issues too here https://github.com/Microsoft/vsts-tasks/issues/4460

                          If I can't deploy to my slot, what's the point of having slot in the first place? Please prioritize this as I think this is a pretty important feature

                          • Hybrid Connection Manager Support for Linux

                            We are an ISV leveraging Azure PaaS to provide an iPaaS service to customers. We have a requirement to connect to on premise servers to access line-of-business apps. Currently, we leverage Azure’s Hybrid Connection Manager --- but are limited to Windows servers only. Our customers have both Windows, Linux and mixed environments. This considerably limits our market.

                            Can we expect Linux support? If so, when? Any suggested work arounds?

                            Thank you for your consideration.

                                    • Add build system for app service on linux

                                      I use App service on Linux with dotnet core container.

                                      Currently, deploy to app service on Linux is git push or ftp.

                                      Deploy by FTP is non secure, so i want to use git.

                                      But, it is not build at time of git push, I have to commit artifacts to Git.

                                      So i would like to add a system to run the build at git push.
