  • On the Application Management page, click Manage web applications.
  • Click SharePoint – sharepoint.myspsite.local:80, and then on the ribbon, click Managed Paths.
  • On the Define Managed Paths dialog box, under Add a New Path, in the Path box, type contosoapps.
  • In the Type list, click Explicit inclusion, click Add Path, and then click OK.
