Do you know how to create a new web application and site collection in SharePoint 2010?

We are now ready to make a new web application and site collection which we will need to match closely to the original SharePoint 2007 server. In the SharePoint 2010 server:
- Open SharePoint Central Administration | Manage web applications
- Click on New
- Enter in the details for the web application using the document from the rule Do you document the details of your SharePoint 2007 web application?
- Go back to SharePoint Central Administration | Create site collections
- Fill out the form to create a new site collection – the only option that is important here is to create a site collection that matches the site collection you will be migration. Eg: If the site collection you are migrating is a Team Site, make a site collection that is a Team Site.
Note: The rest do not matter as they will be replaced when you restore the database from SharePoint 2007.
Do you feel this rule needs an update?
