Upgrade Ghost blog running on Azure Web Apps

I've been caught by this time and time again so it's time I blogged about it. My Ghost blog is running on Azure Web Apps and it usually runs flawlessly, unless I do something stupid to break it.

Since I tend to use my blog as a knoweldge base and a repository of things that took effort to implement, I want to be able to search my content at any time with ease.
