This Blog runs on WordPress installed on a Windows Server that runs in Azure. There are obviously cheaper and easier (probably?) places to run a WordPress blog. But I work in a Microsoft centric environment and I work in Azure (a lot) and doing it this way allows me to tinker and test things. I… Continue reading Another Blog?

Azure CDN Endpoint Certs Bummer
I have a site (Michael’s World) that uses an Azure CDN Endpoint. I have shared here before that you can use this to share static web content. I had it setup with the apex/root domain and went to update the cert. (You have to bring your own cert or pay for a cert for the… Continue reading Azure CDN Endpoint Certs Bummer
Redirect Http to Https using Azure CDN
In my recent efforts to move my one page, static content website, I have had a few challenges. First let me say, those challenges were most certainly due to my ignorance, and not due to the technology in use. Also, some of my issues are related to trying to make a simple task more complicated… Continue reading Redirect Http to Https using Azure CDN
Finally got it all working
I have been on a quest the past few days to move one of my websites to Azure. Overall, it isn’t really that difficult, but it also isn’t very clear. First, I created an Azure Storage Account, and enabled it for static website capability. Then, because I don’t like easy, I enabled it for HTTPS/TLS… Continue reading Finally got it all working
As I posted previously, I am working on moving all of my websites to Azure. I started with the easiest one, which is a static page. So far, I have moved it, and it is now reachable via HTTPS, but not without the ‘www’. While that isn’t important for that particular site, it is important… Continue reading Let’s Encrypt
Skip the www (part 2)
Many moons ago, I figured out how to get my websites to be accessible without the www subdomain. When I recently moved one of my three websites to Azure, I didn’t immediately solve that problem. As the website isn’t ever visited and isn’t important, this isn’t an issue, but I do want to solve it… Continue reading Skip the www (part 2)
I currently own 3 domains, one of which you are visiting now. Another domain I own is much less useful, and really was the result of a joke. I have until now hosted it on a Windows Server, and wanted to move it to Azure. It isn’t a very complicated as it is just a… Continue reading TWRAM
What is this CI/CD thing? Let’s do a tutorial!
Well, according to Wikipedia, CI/CD is: In software engineering, CI/CD or CICD generally refers to the combined practices of continuous integration and either continuous delivery or continuous deployment. CI/CD bridges the gaps between development and operation activities and teams by enforcing automation in building, testing and deployment of applications. So, of course I get what… Continue reading What is this CI/CD thing? Let’s do a tutorial!
Revisiting my Blog
I have spent a decent amount of time over the years, trying to convince myself to spend some time on my blog. I have updated the OS of the VM that runs it. I have migrated from whatever platform I started on (I think I had two different ones going at one point.) I have… Continue reading Revisiting my Blog
Still not there
A while back, I said I was making progress on migrating this blog to Azure. In case you care, I didn’t. I was really interested in doing so for a little while, but got busy on other things, and … lost interest. I am interested again, so maybe this time I will make it. The… Continue reading Still not there
