Streamlining Azure AppService Backups for DNN/Evoq

With the continued adoption of Azure, and the great pricing, I am seeing more sites migrating to Azure. As we see more sites moving to Azure, I am starting to notice a few trends with regards to the way that sites are configured, backed-up, and restored using the Azure AppServices features. This post will look specifically at how to control your Backup processes with relation to DNN files to ensure a higher success rate for backups if there is interest in these topics I'll follow up with other Azure specific information.

Windows Azure 90 Day Free Trial - Buyer Beware!

This is just a quick public service announcement for those that might be looking at trying the new Windows Azure service for hosting a DotNetNuke site.  I have been working with a few people that have been wanting to try it out and overall the experience has been pretty good as the DNN install was successful and performed quite well.  However, the reason for this post is a warning to those of you that are working within the "free trial" period.

Development and Test DotNetNuke Installations and Search Engines

It is quite often that when working on a new version of a site that you will have a development, test, upgrade copy of the site that might be around for a while.  It is also possible that if you are working for a third-party that you might stage client sites on your server for a period of time before go-live.  At first glance this all seems common place and not something that you would be concerned about.  However, that is not the case.  Search engines have become overly aggressive in indexing sites, including those that have no direct back links but have been e-mailed to individuals or similar processes. In this post I'll discuss some important considerations when working with these "non-production" installations to help you ensure that search engines will NOT index the content and cause confusion.
