Need to download the web application and files you deployed into Azure? Bring up the Azure portal. I’m using the “new” version (it’s been out for years now, but I still consider it the new one). Then, select your application to bring up the properties. From the list of actions, select “Get publish profile”:
Open the publish profile file and you’ll see all kinds of wonderful XML. There are a couple of <publishprofile> elements inside. Look for one that defines the FTP publishing information, like this:
<publishProfile profileName=”MyApp – FTP”
Find the userName and userPWD settings under the FTP profile section – they are located right after the “ftpPassiveMode” setting is declared. Just plug in your username and password into your favorite FTP client, and away you go!
