We used the Azure portal, using the Bitnami installer from the market place
Yes we did but to be honest they were pretty useless as the instructions are not very informative.
Yes, the WP is on it's own virtual server. we installed Magento on a new separate virtual server.
The url I have discovered appears to be 220.127.116.11/polarisweb.ukwest.cloudapp.azure.com but this comes up with a 503 error and is extremely slow to load. (the server is turned off at the moment a it is consuming bandwidth but not actually doing anything)
The whole process appears to be unnecessarily complicated for what is effectively a simple operation, but maybe that's because I don't know what I am doing! Simplified step by step instructions would be helpful.
Any help in understanding this problem would be appreciated
