Deploy Project Web App
Updated: April 23, 2013
Summary: A Project Web App site can be deployed in conjunction with creating a new site collection, or it can be added to an existing site collection.
Applies to: SharePoint Server 2013 Enterprise | Project Server 2013
Project Web App deployment options
There are two options for deploying Project Web App. You can either create a Project Web App site as the top level of a new site collection, or you can add a Project Web App site to an existing site collection.
If you are looking for a clean environment to begin managing projects in Project Web App, consider creating your Project Web App site as the top level site in a new site collection. (This was the only option available in Project Server 2010.) For step-by-step instructions on how to create a Project Web App site as the top level site in a new site collection, see Deploy Project Web App with a new site collection (Project Server 2013).
If you have existing sites where you have SharePoint task list projects and you want to add Project Server functionality to them, you can add a Project Web App site to that site collection. For step-by-step instructions on how to add a Project Web App site to an existing site collection, see Deploy Project Web App in an existing site collection (Project Server 2013)
