This page (see Figure 10.39) provides the same settings as on the SharePoint Designer page for site
collections (as shown in Figure 10.16)—except they apply to the entire web application and override
whatever settings were configured on individual site collections within that web application.
Managing Web Application Features
Like sites and site collections, web applications have features that apply to the entire web
application (and the site collections therein). These can be provided by third-party companies to
integrate their products into SharePoint or as part of an overall solution to customize SharePoint
functionality. To view web application features, go to the Manage Web Application page and
click the Manage Features button, which will take you to the page shown in Figure 10.40. If there
are features installed that were scoped to apply to a web application, they would be manageable
here. Currently, we have no web application features.
The Manage Web
As discussed in Chapter 1, ”Windows SharePoint Foundation 2010 Under the Hood,” uses
Internet Information Server (IIS) to host and publish all of its websites. This means that
everything you see through the web browser is being hosted on or accessed by IIS and is, therefore,
bound by the rules of IIS.
