I have an existing site with a lot of member contributed files throughout several portals.
I'm moving my site to MS Azure and would like to move the files into azure storage as well. I grabbed a few modules that implement custom folder providers for azure (eg. Evotiva's cloud module) and was able to create a new azure folder and store files in it. So far so good.
I have a couple of questions:
1. Is there a way(aside from writing custom code) to enable the azure folder providers for all my portals all at once, or do i have to do it one by one? (there are over 200 portals to work with)
2. Assuming that i have the azure folders for all my portals, what's the best way to point my existing page's links to the new cloud storage locations. I've thought that i may have to go through the html module's table and run some kind of 'update' script but i'm not sure if there are better/safer ways to do this.
Another option that occurred to me was to use a URLRewriter to simply point all the file links to the new azure storage.
3. Some of the files are private files, are there additional things to consider.
If i had to summarize my entire situation, how do i move all the files from all my portals into cloud storage(Azure) and ensure that all the links work?
Thanks a lot for your input, I appreciate it. DNN is a great platform to work with and has one of the smartest community i've seen. My account is new because i'm usually able to get most of my questions answered just by browsing the forums.
