    I have a site that is hosted on production environment. The Url is similar to http://www.mysite.com. The issue I face is:

    Scenario 1:
    1. I go to adding a page.
    2. I select the template of the page.
    3. I add content to the page.
    4. I hit the button publish.
    5. I receive an error of : DefaultWorkflows/PagesApprovalWorkflow.xamlx
    6. To fix this, I go to: ServicePaths. Enter the WorkflowBaseUrl as: http://www.mysite.com
    7. I Save Changes and follow step 1-4. The pages publishes

    Excellent. It works. My Admin URL for above is: http://www.mysite.com/Sitefinity

    Scenario 2:
    For this Scenario, My Admin URL is: http://mysite.com/Sitefinity
    Steps followed are:

    1. I go to adding a page.
    2. I select the template of the page.
    3. I add content to the page.
    4. I hit the button publish.
    5. I again receive an error of : DefaultWorkflows/PagesApprovalWorkflow.xamlx
    6. The WorkflowBaseUrl is: http://www.mysite.com

    Is there a way to avoid this embarassment?

    Can we do away with WorkflowBaseUrl?

    Hi Siddesh,

    Thank you for contacting Sitefinity support.

    The problem is caused because Sitefinity is messaging the workflow internally, not from the same location from which you are trying to publish the item. This is why we've introduced the WorkflowBaseUrl setting which allows you to configure where the WorkflowService endpoint should be resolved.

    Would it be possible to share whit us some additional information on the specific use case scenario, namely how the site bindings are configured in IIS (you can provide a screenshot if possible), and if you have added references to the host header for this site in the hosts file on the server.

    In the meantime, what you can try is referencing the host headers for both bindings in the hosts file, for example:   domainname.com   www.domainname.com

    And remove the WorkflowBaseUrl setting. if any issues persist, please do not hesitate to let us know, we'll be glad to help you further.

    All the best,
    Patrick Dunn
