    Hi guys,

    Whenever we redeploy the sitefinity web application or open it up in Visual Studio locally the home page setting is cleared and the site goes back to not having a home page set.

    In order to resolve it perform the below steps:

    - Click on the Pages tab in the Sitefinity backend
    - Click on the Actions link of the page you would like to be your home page
    - Select Set as Homepage

    Perform the above steps event if the page seems already to be selected as home page.

    - SystemConfig.config file from the App_Data\Sitefinity\Configuration folder to check the version of the each module is correct or not.
