Screwturn Wiki

Screwturn wiki 4 is available for Azure, so I thought I’d try it out.
The instruction at this code quick were used to deploy. It took more than five minutes (didn’t time precisely) to get from deployment through initialization to the ready state


Unfortunately, navigating to the URL gave me a runtime error with no details.




interview w/ ST-devs on why ST was built for Azure





As usual, Screw Turn Wiki installation “instructions” presume absolute knowledge on behalf of the installer.....


BUT I eventually got it to work.


  1. Create a Windows Azure Storage Account as shown in http://blog.nimbotech.com/2011/05/how-to-deploy-a-windows-azure-application/
  2. copy the access key, and the name of your subscription
  3. update these values in ServiceConfiguration.cscfg
    1. where AccountKey := access key, and AccountName := <name of your subscription>
    2. <Setting name="ConnectionString" value="DefaultEndpointsProtocol=https;AccountName=###ACCOUNTNAME###;AccountKey=###KEY###" />
  4. Upload both components as shown in this code quick
  5. if you’ve already uploaded your package
    1. you can edit the configuration from with the Hosted Services panel
      1. by selecting the Deployment >> Configure
      2. and then either edit-in-place, or upload a new config file
