Moving from IIS to Azure Cloudapp

I currently have an instance of Orchard running on IIS in a VM with MSSQL. I need to move this to an azure cloudapp.

I tried this a few weeks ago but couldnt get it working. I have moved the entire database to the shared sql but when I try and include the settings.txt file it still wants to connect to a new db. Is there anyway I can deploy it into a cloudapp and connect it to the new, existing database?

Did you update the connection string in the Settings.txt file?

Yes, I have it pointed to the azure database on my local copy and it works fine.

Ive also tried manually copying the settings.txt file into the instance (via RDP) and it still didnt pick it up.

And you are sure that the Settings.txt file on the server uses a connection string that points to the new, existing database?
