If you have a slowly (virtual) machine, you can ran into an issue when creating a new SharePoint 2013 web application.

Everything appeared to be going correctly until the dialog box displayed "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage". 

If you make some check, you can observe that:

  • in IIS the Application Pool and Site were both created as well
  • some virtual directorys are empty
  • the content database is not created

The problem is a time out in IIS.

You need to increase the time on IIS in order to give to SharePoint the time to create all components. To do that, you need to

  1. Open IIS Manager and select the SharePoint Central Administration Application Pool (many thanks This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.for the tests)
  2. On the right hand side of the window click Select Application Pool Defaults
  3. Change the following 3 Process Model time settings from 90 to 400
    1. Ping Maximum Response Time
    2. Shutdown Time Limit
    3. Startup Time Limit

Now, you are able to create correctly the web applications.
