Generally when you see "Web" mentioned in programming terms (SPWeb) it actually means a means what a user calls a site and a "Site" (SPSite) is a site collection. A Web Application is a unit ...

Remember that SharePoint web applications can have multiple URLs since they can be extended onto different IIS websites e.g. http://authoring.site.com and http://www.site.com. If you're looking to get the URL for the default zone (either with a web app which has been extended or not), you can use: webApp.GetResponseUri(SPUrlZone.Default);

Many points can be taken in consideration while choosing web application or site collection. Some important ones are: 1) Web application provides isolation.

You could create a new web application named how you want and then attach the content database(s) from your old web application in order to keep your existing sites.

If you are limited by Memory, you can share the same App Pool between several Web applications. This will allow you to save some memory. Sharing AppPools will allow you to pool that "base" memory per app pool. The total amount of requiered RAM cannot be dertermined by just the number of WebApps, but is also affected by many other factors. A valid reason to ...

There are so many better ways to improve the performance and scalability of SharePoint than trying to partition site collections across web applications.

The advantage of multiple managed paths is it's a first piece of metadata you can have in your farm. It helps break sites out into logical trees even thought they all reside in the same farm. This becomes very beneficial if you organize your structure very flat (many site collection) Based on the managed paths, you can have different SLAs for things ...

I've seen some organizations use a single site collection to hold everything, and create more site collections than they need so they struggle with administration and maintenance. Both of those extremes can be bad. It is really about trying to find the sweet spot for how your sites will be used and maintained. Awhile back I wrote a pretty detailed blog ...

Here's a couple of options for you: In Central Admin, go to your Search Service Application (Content SSA if you use FAST Search for SharePoint) then navigate to Server Name Mappings and create one.

If you are going to get the property bags of your web application or farm OFTEN, you could create a custom HttpHandler to create a dynamic javascript file which will load the properties you want. See my blog post about how to create an httphandler. The idea is partly inspired from loading _spPageContextInfo If you think it is the way to go, I can tell more. ...

While the scope of your question is really too broad and many answers can fit to suit as needed, I would share a starting point specific to determine the need of site collection vs web application.

The right way to grant access is to use the SPWebApplication.GrantAccessToProcessIdentity method. It sets up the database permissions for you, but remember to run it again if you add content databases. You can do this with the following PowerShell: $webApp = Get-SPWebApplication TEAM_SITE_URL $webApp.GrantAccessToProcessIdentity("domain\username of MY SITE ...

When you create the Web Application you decide what should be the URL of it. And in your setup it should not be the URL of any of your servers, but the URL for the load balancer which distributes the work between wfe01 and wfe02. And normally you'll leave the web application service running on the App server as well and let Search Crawl use that locally by ...

Is this what you are after? The basic steps are: Create a new host header based web application ...

I am not a big fan of mixing the two, but it can be done. My preference is to either integrate and deploy the app to SharePoint or run it on a separate web application in IIS. The request handling process was rewritten with 2007 so there is no longer an "excluded paths" option in the Managed Paths section. If you create a folder in the root of the web ...

The thing to remember is that on x64 systems, an app pool can consume a lot of memory, if unchecked, 1GB+. On x86 systems, ASP.NET is capped at 900MB by default. Setting a memory cap is useful, but will cause the app pool to recycle if the app tries to go over it, basically bringing your app down for a few seconds. If bad code (Undisposed SPSite objects ...
