How to: Create a Site Collection at the Root Level of Your Web Application

Have you ever wanted to create a site collection off the root of your site at a path such as (/MySiteCollection), only to find a screen that looks like this? This really stinks.  After all, I don’t want my site new site collection to be under /personal or /sites. I want it to be under the root (/). The link to the left points us to the managed paths page, but you need to know what you are doing.  Going to the managed paths page, we see something like this. As you can see we have four entries listed, but only two are setup as Wildcard inclusions.  Looking at the dropdownlist fro... (more)
