Sometimes certain files may be locked while installing the extension. If you are experiencing errors accessing your site after installing the extension or no data is showing up in Moesif, try the following two things:
Disable all Azure extensions and then re-enable them. This can be done by setting
0in Microsoft Azure Application Settings. Then enable them again by setting
1(or delete the setting).
Stop the web app, wait a few seconds, and then start the web app.
If you’re still having trouble, you can set
