Self hosting n8n - webhook url error

I just learned how to self-host the n8n and use it.

The reason I choose the self is that I will get an unlimited execution time limit.

Now here’s the problem:

I created the webhook and this is what I got

http://localhost:5678/webhook/70b38763-c3b9-445e-afdc-8db583755d1d

Now this URL is not acceptable.

How can I get the correct URL, also how can I host the n8h server but can get access to it anywhere just using chrome?

It looks like your topic is missing some important information. Could you provide the following if applicable.

  • n8n version:
  • Database (default: SQLite):
  • n8n EXECUTIONS_PROCESS setting (default: own, main):
  • Running n8n via (Docker, npm, n8n cloud, desktop app):
  • Operating system:

It looks like you did not configure n8n correctly (you did either not set up a domain for n8n at all or it is not configured correctly via the environment variable). Please follow one of our Installation guides. If you follow it you can be sure that everything will work correctly.

But also keep in mind what we have written on that page:

n8n recommends self-hosting for expert users. Mistakes can lead to data loss, security issues, and downtime. If you aren’t experienced at managing servers, n8n recommends n8n Cloud.
