Support » Plugin: Microsoft Azure Storage for WordPress » Does this plugin work if I don’t want images to be modified?

    I’m interested in storing the entire wp-uploads folder in Azure, but I don’t want my images to be modified or anything to be changed, I only want this to be a drive basically.

    Does it work like that or will it always transform images?

  • Hi @fariazz,

    Thanks for raising your question and happy to hear you want to use the plugin.

    Could you please clarify what do you mean by “modifying” ?

    I’ll give you an example, if you upload an image, then what will be stored in your azure blob will be 4 different files of the same images with different sizes.

    Is this what are you referring to?

    Have a very nice day!

    Thanks for your response @oscarssanchez! We opted not to use this plugin. Instead, we will be using an Azure File System for the wp-uploads folder, so that we can then mount it in different application servers.

    @fariazz ..

    I’m curious how you’re doing that.. “using an Azure File System for the wp-uploads folder”

    Would you mind sharing info how you’re doing that?

    I’m guessing you’re doing this with WordPress on other-than the Web App Service?

    Thanks!

    I’m not using WordPress at all for that. These are the steps I followed:

    1) Create an Azure File System, mount it to your server (Ubuntu in my case): https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/linux/mount-azure-file-storage-on-linux-using-smb

    2) Once you’ve mounted the disk, copy the wp-uploads folder to that disk

    3) Create a symlink in your wp-content folder which redirects wp-uploads to the content of the disk

    Note that loading files from the Azure file system is significantly slower than the server’s disk, so only do this if you are using a CDN for your files.

    best of luck

    Ok. I’d figured you’re likely on a VM.. wishful thinking there was *actually* a way to do via Azure App Service.

    Thanks for the info!
