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
