Creating Web Applications
Hello, and welcome to this course on provisioning and configuring web applications in SharePoint 2016. My name is Vlad Catrinescu, and I will be your instructor for this course. In this module, we will learn how to create web applications in SharePoint 2016. We will first start by a more technical overview of web applications compared to what we saw in the last module, and we will also look at the limits and recommendations that we need to be aware of when planning our logical architecture. We will then learn how to create web applications by using the Central Administration, and finally, we will learn how to create web applications by using PowerShell.

Creating Managed Paths
Hello, and welcome to this course on provisioning and configuring web applications in SharePoint 2016. My name is Vlad Catrinescu, and I will be your instructor for this course. In this module, we will learn how to create managed paths for our web applications in SharePoint Server 2016. We will first start this module by understanding what managed paths are, and when we should use them. We will then look more in detail at both explicit inclusion managed paths, as well as wildcard inclusion managed paths, and learn what they are, when to use them, and how to create them from the SharePoint Central Administration. Lastly, we'll look at how to create managed paths from PowerShell.

Configuring Alternate Access Mappings
Hello, and welcome to this Pluralsight course on provisioning and configuring web applications in SharePoint 2016. My name is Vlad Catrinescu, and I will be your instructor for this course. In this module, we will learn how to create and configure alternate access mappings for our web applications in SharePoint 2016. We will first start this module by understanding what alternate access mappings are, and when we should use them. We will then look more in detail at both internal URL alternate access mappings, as well as public URL alternate access mappings, and we will earn how to create them. We will then look at how to create and manage alternate access mappings by using PowerShell, and finally we will learn about extending web applications, which can offer the same benefits, and they're even more flexible than alternate access mappings.

Managing Web Application Settings
Hello, and welcome to this course on provisioning and configuring web applications in SharePoint 2016. My name is Vlad Catrinescu, and I will be your instructor for this course. In this module, we will learn how to manage web application settings in SharePoint 2016. We will start this module by learning what SharePoint Designer settings we can change at the web application level, and how to change them both by using the Central Administration and PowerShell. We will then look at the List Throttling changes for the web application, which some of you may know as the 5, 000 item limit on your list. We will then look at how to configure the max file size, which is what is the maximum size of a file that can be uploaded to a SharePoint site, and this setting is at the web application level, so we will learn how to change that for every web application according to your business needs. Lastly, we'll look at how to configure service connections for web applications in SharePoint.
