    Hi there,

    If you visit wp-admin/options-general.php?page=windows-azure-storage-plugin-options you should see a dropdown labeled “Default Storage Container”. Using this dropdown you should be able to select any existing container or create a new one.

    If this does not work the credentials you entered likely do not have sufficient permissions.

    Could you provide a screenshot of your settings screen with private data obfuscated?

    I finally figured out what was wrong. the php-xml package was not installed on the server. I finally found an error in one of the log files that pointed me in the right direction:

    Some plugins check for all required dependencies and have strong error reporting if something is missing. This plugin does not do that šŸ™‚

    Thanks, that’s a good find. We’ll add some test method to the plugin

    FYI, I had the same issue with that drop down being empty during the initial config. No option to create a new container either. I had to save, wait a few minutes and reopen the page using the url above before I could see the options. Saved again after.
