Creating a web application is the primary step for setting up a sharepoint site. When you think about Sharepoint Web Applications the first two questions that come up are:

  • Where I should keep my Content Database? In which Database Server? What's Database Recovery and Backup Plan?
  • Which is the port I am going to use for this web application?
  • Which Application Identity User? Do I have windows Service user?
  • What is the SQL server Authentication mode?
  • State Service Started?

Once those basic questions are documented we can start the process of creating the web application.
