comment Enabling forms based authentication for existing Sharepoint Web Application
Final summary: In the end I backed-up the existing site collection to a file using the PowerShell. Then I dropped the web application and then built it up from scratch but using FBA instead as described in the various links above. I then imported the site collection again and all is well.

comment Enabling forms based authentication for existing Sharepoint Web Application
That's excellent - many thanks. The downside with this is that I will need to extend to an additional IIS web application. I cannot simply extend the existing web app because that throws an error that it is already used by SharePoint. This is unfortunate because the final design calls for one web app only, all being authenticated via forms-based authentication (the whole web app will be extranet in effect).

comment Unable to delete site outside of site collection
Thank you - that was exactly the problem. My misunderstanding was indeed that it seemed that a site could be made outside of a collection. Deleting the root site collection did the trick. Many thanks.
