I did an oopsie with central administration on SharePoint 2010. Instead creating site collection, i create a site within the ca. I tried to delete it by go to site setting > sites and workspaces > delete the site as well as go in to the site > site action > site settings > delete this site. I couldn't delete this unwanted site off the central administration. Any thought on deleting this?
