How to remove or delete or redirect

You should know that cannot be deleted, it is redirected to custom domain only with the help of a rule. Adding a redirect rule will open all URLs containing to URLs containing your custom domain.

To redirect the URL to a custom domain, you need to add a rule to the web.config file, which requires opening the file manager of WordPress.

Since there are only two ways to open the file manager of WordPress launched on Azure. Either the file manager of WordPress can be opened with the help of a plugin or with the help of tools from Azure.

We recommend making changes to the coding of WordPress’s file manager using tools from Azure, as any coding errors can be corrected. But if you make changes to the coding of WordPress’ file manager via the plugin, and unfortunately, a coding error occurs, your website will instantly break. And if you don’t know how to open WordPress’s file manager using Azure’s tools, the only way is to delete that web app from Azure and launch WordPress from the app market again.

So first of all, with the help of Azure tools, open WordPress’s file manager, so that redirect rule can be added to web.config file.

For this, you automatically open the App service dashboard in Azure. There, in the Service Features bar on the left, click on “Advanced Tools” in the Development Tools section. Since the webpage that will open on clicking “Advance Tools” will look blank, but click on the “Go” link given there. On clicking, you will be redirected to the kudu service of Azure, where you will be able to open the file manager of WordPress.

When you will reach the kudu service dashboard, there you will be able to see the details and environment of your website. There you will see the “Debug console” menu at the top. It will have two submenus named CMD and Powershell. Click on “CMD” there and let the page open. Once that page is opened, you will see four files in it. Click on the “site” file at the bottom of it and let the page open. Now click on the “wwwroot” file at the bottom of it and let the page open. Now scroll down there and find web.config. Find web.config, then click on its edit button, so that you can edit the code of web.config. Once the web.config file is opened, you will see a rule already attached to it. Now you have to add one more rule, which is given below.

<rule name="Redirect requests from default Azure websites domain" stopProcessing="true"><match url="(.*)" /> <conditions logicalGrouping="MatchAny"><add input="{HTTP_HOST}" pattern="^abcd\.azurewebsites\.net$" /><add input="{HTTP_HOST}" pattern="^www\.ijklmnop\.in$" /></conditions><action type="Redirect" url="{R:0}" appendQueryString="true" redirectType="Permanent" /></rule>

Instead of abcd in this rule code, write the prefix you added to your and instead of our domain, write your domain in the same format as it is written in it and save the whole rule code by adding it as shown in the picture below.
