I'm attempting to deploy formalms over an Azure environment.
Has anyone tried this successfully? I'm finding simple yet annoying issues that I'm not sure how to deal with, for example:
1. Avatar pics are not shown - Files are uploaded (I can see the files imported with no extension to the xxx/Photos directory) simply not displayed. I´ve tried several file extensions and file sizes to no avail.
2. When making changes to certain items like links or scorm courses, after saving changes the page takes over 2 mins to load if it refreshes at all. (the changes are applied, however, the page does not refresh or display a success message).
3. Scorm courses are not displayed on all browsers. Chrome is the most problematic. I know this may be related to the course I'm testing with. Does anyone have a sample file I can test with that works on Chrome, IE, Firefox, Safari?

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated!

This is my server configuration info:

Configuration of "allow_url_include": Off
PHP extension php_openssl: On
Configuration of "allow_url_fopen": On

The only settings I´ve changed for PHP are "upload_max_filesize" & "post_max_size"
Thanks everyone for any input! :oops: :D

as I can see from your post , you are using IIS web server on a Microsoft windows server .

in release notes the IIS web server is listed as a usable webserver, but is not the primary choiche . The development and test web server is Apache.
We have some installation of formalms on IIS version 7 and 8.x ( windows server 2012) .

Your issues can be related with IIS 10.0 , Windows server 2016 or Azure features (firewall, mimetype , ecc )
Can you install Apache 2.4 on your server and made test ?
