I am trying to publish an azure webjob from the VisualStudio, but it fails with error
An error was encountered when processing operation 'Create Directory' on 'D:\home\site\wwwroot\app_data'. The error code was 0x80070002. Could not find file 'D:\home\site\wwwroot\app_data'. at Microsoft.Web.Deployment.NativeMethods.RaiseIOExceptionFromErrorCode(Win32ErrorCode errorCode, String maybeFullPath) at Microsoft.Web.Deployment.DirectoryEx.CreateDirectory(String path)
at Microsoft.Web.Deployment.DirPathProviderBase.CreateDirectory(String fullPath, DeploymentObject source) at Microsoft.Web.Deployment.DirPathProviderBase.Add(DeploymentObject source, Boolean whatIf) Publish failed to deploy.
When I login to this WebApp in portal and open terminal I cannot see the web_app folder. And when I try to create it using
mkdir it fails with
The system cannot find the file specified.
I tested it a bit more - and I cannot create any folders there!
wwwroot folder might be locked?
If I try the same thing with a different WebApp - all works fine. I dont want to recreate the webapp
Application is deployed with WEBSITE_RUN_FROM_ZIP = 1 option. And it is a .NetCore 2.1 web app.
So the next question is:
1) How to add WebJob application to be published into a same package as webapp using dotbet publish command? (similar to https://stackoverflow.com/a/50046561/1300049)
2) Or how to deploy the WebJob into alternative location like
d:\home\site\jobs\ in VSTS?
Found a workaround that I dont really like. But it works. But I am more than open for a better solutions.
1) During the build phase build the whole solution using MSBuild with magic arguments similar to the ones provided in this answer - https://stackoverflow.com/a/46661421/1300049
2) Then, still in a build phase run dotnet publish for the webapp project, but without zipping
3) As a final accord of a build copy the "app_data" of the webjob (from step 1) into the publish location of the webapp (step 2) and zip it all together.
4) In the release phase deploy using the artifacts as usual. Just make sure that you removed all your previous attempts to solve the problem using "WEBJOBS_ROOT_PATH" environment variable...
