Do you have problems with your Azure Web App not updating after you publish (from Visual Studio or other tool)? I had these problems with my Azure Linux ASP.NET Core Apps, but they can happen with any type of Azure Web App (or even Azure Functions). I will explain how I solved these problems and why they occured.
Azure Blob Storage can be used for publishing files to the web. Actually, this website is using Azure Blog Storage for publishing images and other resources. They each get an URL for direct access from any web browser. However, it is good practice and good for performance to setup caching on images and web resources. Here I will describe how.
Two important settings in Azure Web Apps that you should really care about are WEBSITE_DYNAMIC_CACHE and WEBSITE_LOCAL_CACHE_OPTION. Being careless with them can lead to either website updating problems or unnecessary performance degradation. I will explain why, and how you should handle them.
Most people (including me) run into this common problem the first time they try to deploy a Linux Web App: Web deployment task failed. Could not connect to the remote computer ("linuxtest1.scm.azurewebsites.net"). This is easily solved. I will show you how.
