Using WordPress on Windows Azure with SQL Server instead of MySQL

Overview

What we’ll need to do is:

  • Install WordPress from the gallery
  • Download the WP DB Abstraction plugin and extract it locally
  • Modify a file to fix a bug in the plugin (I know, sorry!)
  • Create a SQL Database on Windows Azure
  • Connect to the website using FTP and delete the wp-config.php that comes with the installation
  • Upload the plugin
  • Configure the plugin to use our SQL Server
  • Install WordPress regularly
  • (Optional) Enable Url Rewrite for friendly links
  • I’m assuming this is a new WordPress installation. What I won’t be covering in this post is how to migrate your data from your old WordPress installation to the new one. There are a lot of tutorials to do that already.
