I would like to use VS2012 and the publish using web deploy to have a single source package and use it to maintain several Azure Web Sites which do not have the same database configuration and theming.

Actually my deployment was replacing the Orchard setting.txt which is very annoying because several dedicated parameters as DataConnectionString, EncryptionAlgorithm/EncryptionKey/HashAlgorithm/HashKey and may be others get replaced.

I have excluded App_Data from the publishing, this seems to solve the issue.

May be some other files of importance get replaced, any advice welcome.

excluding app_data seems to be the right thing to do.
