How to: Create, Edit, and Delete Windows SharePoint Services Sites

A default Web site for Windows SharePoint Services is automatically created when you install Team Foundation and choose to install Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 at the same time. Additionally, every time that you create a project in Team Foundation Server, you automatically create a project portal. However, you can create, modify, and delete additional Web sites for use with Team Foundation Server. For more information about Windows SharePoint Services sites and administration, see the Microsoft Web site: Windows SharePoint Services Administrator's Guide for Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 and Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0.

Caution noteCaution:

You should not delete a project Web site or a default administration Web site unless you are retiring the project, the server that hosts Team Foundation Server, or the server that hosts SharePoint Products and Technologies.
