After the successful install of the Sitecore XC 9.0.2. I get the store homepage same as the Sitecore CMS. Not sure if this has to do with port binding. I will really appreciate if some expert can help me out with this issue. Screenshots of the issue are attached below.enter image description here

That’s because you did not use the default host name sxa.storefront.com. To correct that:

log into sc9.sc/sitecore/

access /sitecore/content/Sitecore/Storefront/Settings/Site Grouping/Storefront

update Host Name to storefront.local

then publish

This should help you.


Your Site Grouping setting looks valid (has properly configured Host Name). Please double check that whole site is published.

Such behavior may also happen if your license doesn't support SXA.
