SharePoint 2013 Web Application Creation Stuck at "This shouldn't take long"
Root cause: Insufficient Server memory!

Try closing any open application in the server and free-up server memory. Increase the "Shutdown Time Limit" value of Central Administration's Application Pool in IIS! Here is how:

  • Login to your SharePoint server which hosts Central Administration
  • Open IIS manager >> Expand the server name and click on Application Pools.
  • Locate the SharePoint Central Administration v4 application pool. Right click on it and choose Advanced Settings.
  • In the Process Model section, set the Shutdown Time Limit to a greater value. E.g 900.
  • Restart IIS.
This could also happen when your SharePoint servers running out of disk space, database auto-growth setting isn't enabled or your server antivirus preventing certain processes.
