The Remove
SharePoint From IIS Web
Site window
Deleting the IIS Web Site deletes, unsurprisingly, the IIS Web Site which removes any
custom settings you might have—but it also keeps IIS nice and clean. If you choose not to delete
the IIS Web Site, the IIS server places the Web Site into the stopped state. So, it’s still there; it’s
just not running.
Again, it is possible to delete the public URL from within the Alternate Access Mapping
page by editing the public URLs and simply clearing the field. However, doing so is not
recommended because it makes no change to IIS. This leaves the Web Site running, so it accepts
connections for the URL (via the host header) and points them at the web application. In this case,
because the public URL has been deleted, SharePoint serves the web pages with the default URL
(for example, http://spf2:8080), but it doesn’t stop service; it just doesn’t return the former
public URL.
Content Databases
During the install process in Chapter 3, you worked with content databases, and you even
created a new one while creating a new web application earlier in this chapter. Now let’s take a
closer look at what you can do with content databases and web applications. Web applications
need at least one content database to put everything in, but they can support additional content
databases. As mentioned in Chapter 2, content databases on a standalone install reside here:
%SharePointRoot%\Data\MSSQL10.SHAREPOINT\MSSQL.DATA
(As a reminder, the SharePoint root is C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\
Web Server Extensions\14. This is sometimes referred to as the SharePoint Root or 14 hive .)
With a complete install, content databases are located on the SQL Server you specified during
installation.

To manage content databases, go to Central Administration’s Application Management page
and click Manage Content Databases. This will take you to the Manage Content Databases page,
shown in Figure 10.80.
On this page, you can see the content databases for a particular web application. As always,
clicking the web application’s name will let you change to a different one. Clicking a content
database’s name will let you edit its settings (see Figure 10.81).
