Modify or resize a Microsoft Azure virtual machine

The Bitnami Launchpad for Microsoft Azure only supports server sizing during the initial server build process. Since the server is accessible via the Azure management console, you can get a resized version of the server from there afterwards if needed.

Follow these steps:

  • Log in to the Microsoft Azure management console.

  • Using the “Virtual machines (classic)” menu, find your server in the list and select it.

  • In the resulting sub-menu, select the “Size” menu option.

  • Browse the list of available server sizes and select the one that best matches your requirements. Click the “Select” button to proceed.

The server should restart using the new type.
