Deleting the extended web application

This post I’m as a reminder because a few days back when I was working on a production environment for one of our clients. I had created an extended web application and needed to remove it. In SharePoint 2007 I have done this several times but in 2010 I had to take a good look.

To delete the extended web application you need to do the following:


    1. Start Central Administration.
    2. Go to Manage Web Applications.
    3. Select the web application you extended.
    4. Click on the Arrow beneath Delete and select Remove SharePoint from IIS Web Site.
    5. Select the Web site.
    6. Finally click OK
