Do you know to pay for Azure WordPress databases?

Last updated by Tiago Araújo [SSW] almost 2 years ago.See history

Setting up a WordPress site hosted on Windows Azure is easy and free, but you only get 20Mb of MySql data on the free plan.

wp db azure1
Figure: Once you approach your 20Mb limit you will receive a warning that your database may be suspended

wp db azure2
Figure: If you are serious about your blog and including content on it, you should configure a paid Azure Add-on to host your MySQL Database when you set it up

wp db azure3
Figure: If you have already created your blog, navigate to your website within the Azure portal, select 'Linked Resources', select the line for the MySQL Database and click the 'Manage link'. This will open the ClearDb portal. Go to the Dashboard and click 'Upgrade'
