Summary: Learn about the two ways to deploy a Project Web App site.
Applies to: 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 upgrading from a previous version of Project Server, you will deploy Project Web App as part of the upgrade process. Read Upgrade to Project Server 2013 instead.
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)
