Cannot connect to local host

Postby dcoffe1 » 31. July 2009 16:19

I have changed the httpd.conf file to listen to 127.0.0.1:80 and have the server name as localhost. I can connect to http://127.0.0.1:80 but not http://localhost. Any ideas?

Remove the entry "::1 localhost" from your HOSTS file.

A search of the files on your PC may find it or try:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts - drag the file into an open TEXT editor by right clicking the text editor's exe file and selecting to run as an administrator so as to prevent any save file issues in Vista.
