Azure website license


I have deployed an episite to a Azure Website, but am having problems with the license file.

I have a cloud developer license file on my local instance, and when I publish from Visual Studio the site says: 

"The license file "D:\home\site\wwwroot\License.config" does not exist"

What am I doing wrong?

I got i working by puting the license file in the website using ftp, but it feels like I am doing it wrong...

Did you include the license inside the csproj? Are you deploying using Publish from Visual studio? Can you see what's inside a temporary publishing folder (should be in obj)? If the file is not inside, you might not have included it in csproj.

Ah, missed to include the file in the project ;) 

Yeah I use Publish from Visual Studio, and after including the license.config in the VS project it worked.

Thanks for the help Marija! :)

When deploying to Azure it is very important to have all that is needed in the project file, see more my blog here:

Hope you get it to work, EPiServer in a Azure Website with autodeploy is great!
