Creating a PWA site at an URL of the sharepoint web application RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear SP and PS users,

    I want to create a PWA site at the URL which is given to the sharepoint web application.

    So, when I install and configure SharePoint a web application is automatically made at the URL of http://projecsrv.

    Is it possible to create the PWA site url to be http://projecsrv and not http://projecsrv/pwa

    with best regards,
    Petar

  • when you create the web app that will be hosting the PWA site.
    Steps:
    • Get with your DNS admin and have an entry created for PWA. Have this pointed to the load balancer or web front end server that will be hosting the PWA app. 
    • Go to SharePoint Central Administration - Application Management - Manage web applications.
    • Create a new web app to host the PWA site. Use the URL created in step 1 for the Host Header.

    • Complete the rest of the fields as appropriate. 
    • Go to SharePoint Central Administration - Application Management - Manage service applications.
    • Create a new Project Server Service Application. Call it PWA, for example.
    • Once processing is complete, click on the name of the new PWA service app.
    • Click create Project Web App site.
    • Ensure the web app you created above is selected. Type a slash "/" for Project Web App Path. Do NOT select Use Project Web App path as host header (you are already using the appropriate host header in IIS when you created the web app).

    Once the PWA site and databases are provisioned, you'll be able to access PWA at http://pwa.mycompany.com (or whatever URL you used).

  • Hi,

    Thank you for your response.
    However, in SP 2016 this is not how you create a PWA.
    Sorry I was not clear that I was using SP and PS 2016 versions. 

    In 2016 versions, you create a PWA site through New SP site command. When you create a new Project server service application there are no URL options for PWA site to choose from.

    If you could explain the first step in a bit more detail, I would greatly appreciate that.

    • Get with your DNS admin and have an entry created for PWA. Have this pointed to the load balancer or web front end server that will be hosting the PWA app.
