To whom it may concern

I don't know why but no matter what I try I cannot get through to deploying to azure free website.

I constantly get error: Could not complete the request to remote agent URL 'http://waws-prod-blu-013.publish.azurewebsites.windows.net:443/MSDE...;.

However I can deploy just fine from vs.

    Hi Theo,

    Take a look at "Azure Web Sites" section here http://www.appveyor.com/docs/deployment/web-deploy#provider-settings.

    The correct URL for WAWS Web Deploy is https://<server>.publish.azurewebsites.windows.net:443/msdeploy.axd?site=<website> where <website> is the name of your WAWS website.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    This works perfectly, thanks. I apparently did not read that part of the
    file :-(.

    Could you possibly assist me with understanding why I cannot clone from a
    public repository (I do have contrib access) without having to fork it on
    my github account?

    I get the below error:

    GitHub gives 404 (not found) instead of 403 (forbidden). When you get this error while adding a new project that means you don't have permissions to add webhook to that repository. Usually, that happens when you are collaborator, not a member of the team/organization.

    Ah okay, thank you for that.

    Will figure out how to get access to that.

    Thanks again for all your help.
