I am developing the MVC application template provided by .NET. But not getting any option for setting pagesstartid. Where to set taht in episever.config file.

<episerver xmlns="http://EPiServer.Configuration.EPiServerSection">
    <workflowHost type="EPiServer.WorkflowFoundation.AspNetWorkflowManager,EPiServer.WorkflowFoundation" />
      <!-- definition:           Workflow definitions that should be predefined, that is if no definition with

Site definitions have moved from config to database.

You can set the start page by going to admin mode -> config -> manage websites -> edit web site
