I have already a web application with this url

is it possible to have mysite on differet web application but following url?


share|improve this question

Yes it's possible.

In fact it's generally recommended to use a seperate web app for my sites as it's common for this to end up being mysite for multiple web applications.

Yes, what I wanted to know was the url of my site .../my. I tested to create a mysite to use above url but I got an error, something like wrong url. – Medes Oct 13 '12 at 21:04
In order to get the start of mysites as you need to first create the web application, then create some site collection at the root, create an explicit managed path of my create a my site host at that managed path and set up user profile service to point at it – Per Jakobsen Oct 13 '12 at 21:07
