Step 8: Create a top-level web site Project Server

To create a top-level web site, you need a SharePoint Web application. Please verify list of available web applications in your SharePoint farm and choose the web application to create a new top-level web site.

View existing web application list:

  • Click Start -> All Programs -> Microsoft SharePoint 2013 Products -> SharePoint 2013 Central Administration to launch the Central Administration page

  • In Central Administration, in the Application Management section, click Manage Web Applications

  • Look for existing web application list. You might be seeing only one web application called SharePoint Central Administration v4.




    If so, you have to create a first Web Application to host SharePoint Site Collections and its sub sites. In this tutorial, we will be using our first web application to host new Project Web App site collection.


    NOTE: If you already have a web application listed and you already created top-level web site, skip this step and proceed to step 9.



Create a new Web Application:

  • In ribbon, Click on New under Web Applications tab
  • “Create New Web Application” window will be displayed. Please enter the required information as same or similar to below according to your preferences.


    NOTE: If you have a pre-defined domain account to be use as a service account for Project Server & SharePoint, please click Register new managed account below to configure the domain account as service account. (Example: Corp\epmadmin). Once you register the account, this account will be serve as service account.












  • Click "OK" to create a web application. Newly created Web Application will now be listed along with SharePoint Central Administration Web Application under Central Administration > Application Management > Manage web applications

  • Click OK to create a top-level web site.




The following message will be displayed with URL of new site collection (top-level web site).



Click on URL or OK to display the top-level site.
