Windows Azure Storage for WordPress
[resolved] plugin doesn't connect with blob storage (10 posts)

    When I'm working at localhost, the plugin works fine.
    But, when I'm at the windows azure, I can't upload files to the blob storage. It shows the error message bellow:

    “testing.jpg” has failed to upload due to an error
    The uploaded file could not be moved to E:\sitesroot/wp-content/uploads/2012/02.

    It's trying to upload some file to my aplication directory instead of the blob storage.
    Does anyone knows what's going on?

    I've got the same problem. Current stable version of wordpress and windows azure storage plugin.

    Does anyone have a solution?

    It looks to issue permission settings.
    The plugin will upload the file to Azure Storage after upload the file to wp-content on local storage.
    Check permission to modify wp-content on local storage.

    At Windows Azure environment, you can add permission at start-up.

    I solved my problem. Problem was the WordPress Tempdir. On Windows Azure, set upload and temp path to an local ressource.

    /** Set UPLOADS path **/
    define('BLOGUPLOADDIR', azure_getlocalresourcepath('<LocalStorageName>'));

    I'm having this problem too.

    in your BLOGUPLOADDIR, are you setting <LocalStorageName> to something? Or is that a literal that I would put in there. And this goes in the wp-config file?

    <LocalStorageName> ist the name of your LocalRessource defined in your ServiceDefintion Configuration. My solution only works on an Windows Azure VM or in the Windows Azure Emulator.

    I just set up a site on Azure, but I'm getting the same error whenever I try to upload an image to display in a post.

    “start_example.png” has failed to upload due to an error
    The uploaded file could not be moved to E:\sitesroot/wp-content/uploads/2012/04.

    If the problem is a folder permission thing, then is there a way to fix it as a start up job when deploying?

    There's actually a discussion over at http://phpazure.codeplex.com/discussions/349701

    It is a permissions issue as I sort-of resolved my issue after updating the permissions. Essentially, you're going to change the install-php-impl.cmd file to say:

    CALL icacls %RoleRoot% /grant "NETWORK SERVICE":F /T

    I haven't yet confirmed this. I manually changed permissions using Remote Desktop to the azure instance. Once I changed permissions, I no longer got the error you're showing. I started getting a different error which I'm working on now.

    If you make that change and confirm it works, please let us know.

    I fixed it with teamsavoy's help. I added this line to the install-php-impl.cmd file as suggested.

    CALL icacls %RoleRoot% /grant "NETWORK SERVICE":F /T

    After upgrading my deployment I was able to save my image file to my blob storage account. I can use azure storage explorer to view the wpsync container and my image is in there. I can now include it in my blog. Thanks for your help, teamsavoy.

    The issue should be fixed with the port to the latest Windows Azure SDK for PHP.
