We’re using an old version of Octopus for our deployments 3.15.8. from July 2017.
Till now we didn’t have any problem with it. Now we’re trying to deploy an app to an Azure linux web app and we’re getting the following error
“: Could not connect to the remote computer (”*********-webapp.scm.azurewebsites.net"). On the remote computer, make sure that Web Deploy is installed and that the required process (“Web Management Service”) is started. "
Investigating the error we’ve seen several threads with similars error which were solved setting the flag WEBSITE_WEBDEPLOY_USE_SCM to false. But setting it to false we got the same error during the deployment. It seems Octopus is ignoring this flag.
Looking to other similar issue we found this request to support Azure linux deploy from Octopus Support Azure WebApps on Linux · Issue #5012 · OctopusDeploy/Issues · GitHub from 2018. Could be that our Octopus version from 2017 doesn’t support deploy to Azure Linux Web apps? or setting WEBSITE_WEBDEPLOY_USE_SCM to false just also it should work?
