A project which deployed perfectly to Azure last time I built it (a couple of months) now fails at web deploy stage with

Could not complete the request to remote agent URL 'https://site.scm.azurewebsites.net/msdeploy.axd?site=site';.

A new project created today fails with same problem

Any clues please?

    Hi Julian,

    Please check that NTLM is disabled in deployment provider settings. Also please check that you can deploy new project created today with Visual Studio.

    Just did publishing to both staging and production Azure web sites and it worked like a charm: https://ci.appveyor.com/project/AppVeyor-Website/website/build/1.0....

    NTLM is set to false in both projects but will test direct publish today

    Hmm, importing a freshly-downloaded .PublishSettings into VS2013 and trying a direct deployment still fails with the same error (a timeout).

    So seems it's not Appveyor but something else.

    If I resolve it I'll post the answer here

    Ok sorted - Azure server resource problem. The two projects I had problems with were both (with another service) on the same appservice plan, which was on the lowest scale setting and was running 98% CPU. Upscaling has resolved the issue.
