While working on your website SoulStones.azurewebsites.net I was trying to redirect an alias URL to the default.  The alias was soulstones.ceo.  When I went to do that in the site settings, I accidentally unchecked the default site and checked the alias site when Redirect was selected.  Now I can't figure out a way to access my website as it keeps redirecting me somewhere else. 

 

Here are the solutions steps I attempted

1. Through SQL database, I deleted the alias web link and set soulstones.azurewebsites.net as primary to True.  Did not fix the problem

2. I have used this query to change the REDIRECT to CANONICALURL in SQL still didn't work.

SELECT * FROM dbo.PortalSettings

WHERE SettingName = 'PortalAliasMapping'

UPDATE PortalSettings SET SettingValue = 'CANONICALURL'

WHERE SettingName = 'PortalAliasMapping'

Do I have to restart the website through web.config? If so, how? (Please be descriptive, I am afraid to mess up web.config also)

I am out of options at this point and no idea how to get my site back.  Any sort of help out be appreciated.  Thank You

you need the website to get restarted in order of restarting your website, e.g. by simply re-saving unchanged web.config.
You will need to modify website aliases, stored in database table PortalAlias afterwards.

Thank you for your reply

Can you be more specific on how this I can reset the website? Also I am getting the following error when I try to visit my site "The page cannot be displayed because an internal server error has occurred."  

Do you have any suggestions what could have caused this error?  Other members from my team might have attempted on some solutions but I can't seem to figure out the source of this new error.  

Here is the link to my website http://soulstones.azurewebsites.net

Thank you in advance

download web.config and re-upload (unchanged), this should Trigger a web restart.
If this doesn't solve the issue, you might have missed to unblock downloaded upgrade zip files (in File Properties), prior to unzipping the files contained.
