TeamCity Stopped Working After Installing Web Deploy

September 10th 2015 Web Deploy TeamCity

After the last reboot my TeamCity build server suddenly stopped working: 404 errors were returned instead of TeamCity dashboard. It turned out some other process was already listening at port 80 when TeamCity was starting up. It must have been something new I installed since the previous reboot.

Deploy from TeamCity to Azure Using Web Deploy

Instead I started exploring the alternatives. I decided to use Web Deploy, because it is reasonably easy to set up and it also supports deleting of removed files from the deployment location.
