Create Azure Web App With PowerShell

In this blog post, we will explore how to create an Azure Web App using Azure PowerShell.

Azure Web App is a powerful platform for hosting and managing web applications. With its scalability, reliability, and security features, it has become a popular choice for many organizations and developers.

Connect to Azure

The first step is to connect to Azure using Azure PowerShell. Open the PowerShell console and run the following command.


PowerShell Script

The following PowerShell script will create a resource group, an App Service plan (Windows) and a Web App.

# Set Variables

# Create a resource group
New-AzResourceGroup -Name $rg -Location $location

# Create an App Service Plan
New-AzAppServicePlan -Name $service_plan -ResourceGroupName $rg -Location $location -Tier Standard -WorkerSize Medium

# Check if Name exist in the subscription
if (Get-AzWebApp -ResourceGroupName $rg -Name $webApp_name -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue) {
    Write-Host "The web app $webApp_name exists."
} else {
    Write-Host "The web app $webApp_name does not exist."
    New-AzWebApp -Name $webApp_name -ResourceGroupName $rg -AppServicePlan $service_plan

Once we have configured our Web App, we can deploy our application to it. There are several ways to deploy an application to an Azure Web App, including using FTP, Git, or Azure DevOps.
