Rich text editor does not work with Umbraco Azure Accelerator

It seems like it is not possible to use the RichText data type in Umbraco when deployed to Azure using the Accelerator.

I deployed Umbraco using the package and scripts found here: and then created a simple document type/template/page with a RichText property. When I try to edit that page the richtext editor won't show up. When I run Fiddler to check the data sent/received I noticed that all requests for /umbraco_client/tinymce3/ and below fails with http status 502.

When I examined the request sent from the browser to the server I noticed that suddenly it tried to call my host on port 20000. A few requests earlier I found that the page http://<host>/umbraco/plugins/tinymce3/tinymce3tinymceCompress.aspx returned javascript that also mentioned port 20000 (see below).

var tinyMCEPreInit = {base : 'http://<host>:20000/umbraco_client/tinymce3', suffix : '_src'};(function(win) {
    var whiteSpaceRe = /^\s*|\s*$/g,

    var tinymce = {
        majorVersion : '3',

        minorVersion : '3.3',

        releaseDate : '2010-04-19',

Is this due to a bug in the accelerator?




I just noticed EwaB's post from wednesday 'Deployment Accelerator - content editing toolbar' that seems to be about the same problem
