If you have deleted your Web Application along with the content then there is no way to recover your deleted web application except if you have a Content Database backup or Windows Backup. If you would have deleted the web application without content then with Content Database in SQL Server you would have reattach it using Mount-SPContentDatabase PowerShell Command.


If you have the Windows Backup then you can still restore the Web Application.

  • Restore the datadrive from backup and you will get your SQL content Database back.
  • Now create a DB from data file, once database restored
  • Now create web application then mount the restored DB to this web app.
