How to debug Azure 500 internal server error

I'm trying to deploy Umbraco to Azure and getting a 500 internal server error. Even turning off custom errors didn't help. Is there any way i can see the error Azure is throwing?

You can simply turn off custom error in Web.Config, no need to use RDP. But make sure you are adding that in the root Web.Config, that will do the trick.

Here is an example:

<system.web>
    <customErrors mode="Off" />
    <compilation debug="true" targetFramework="4.5">
       ........
    </compilation>
</system.web>

Just be aware that there are multiple web.configs in a typical project. Make sure you are adding this in the root web.config (where your Global.asax is) and NOT in Views folder.

Hope it helps!
