I want to re-do our use of the My Sites feature to point to a separate web application (instead of the current web app which is Sharepoint - 80).
I'm confused about where to create the My Site Host site collection that uses the Enterprise site template named My Site Host
I've created the new web app as SPSTAFF:8080. There was by default a single managed path for this new web app called /sites (which I may delete later because I'm thinking this web app will be dedicated to personal sites.
I went ahead and added a managed path to this new web app as /mysites with wildcard inclusion.
Should I create the My Site Host site collection at the root of the newly created web app?
or Should I create this My Site Host site collection at a URL that includes the managed path?
Ultimately, I want to delete all current content under My Sites at the port 80 web app (it was just for "practice") and I want to have all users create their personal sites at a URL that includes the above /mysites/ segment
