Quick Tip: Delete extended Web Application

Posted by Christian Dam on July 17, 2008

The extended web applications are not listed in the “normal” web application list and cannot be deleted through Delete Web Application in Central Administration.

Use this approach to delete the extended web apps:

  1. Start Central Administration
  2. Go to Application Management
  3. Click Remove SharePoint from IIS Web Site
  4. Select the web application that the extended web app was extended from
  5. Select which extention/zone to delete
  6. Keep or delete the IIS Web site
  7. Finally click OK

Quick Tip: Delete list items from a list

Posted by Christian Dam on July 2, 2008

It doesn’t seem there is a built-in way in MOSS/WSS to delete all list items from a list without deleting the entire list. A workaround is to save the list a a template without content, delete the list and recreate it using the template.

However, there is a gl-deletelistitem option in Gary’s STSADM Custom Extentions that can be used. It works well but it is rather slow so¬†for large lists the template method may still be faster.
