Remove a site collection or a site

Inevitably, you will need to remove site collections or sites.  You can use a script to remove site collections, site collection folders, sites, site folders, and all the media items and template folders that are created during the scaffolding process. Depending on what you want to remove, there are scripts  available to remove site collection folders, site collection, site folders, and sites.

To remove a site collection, site, or folder:

  1. In the Content Editor, right-click the site collection, site, or folder that you want to remove. 

  2. Click Scripts and then, depending on what you want to remove, select Remove Site CollectionRemove SiteRemove Site Collection Folder, or Remove Site Folder.

  3. In the Message dialog box, to confirm that you want to remove, for example, the site collection, click OK.

    SXA now runs a script to remove the site collection, site, or folder and all the related templates and media files.
