  Apache Web-Serving with Mac OS X: Part 1
Subject:   'The attempt to load 'Accessing URL:http://localhost/' failed
Date:   2003-11-24 06:14:07
From:   anonymous2
All access with explorer gives me the message:
"The attempt to load 'Accessing URL:http://localhost/' failed." Or whatever I try (127.0.0.1; mycomputername; localhost/~myname/ etc)


I know the web server is working as "telnet localhost 80" followed by "GET / HTTP/1.0" works.


Does anyone know how to fix this? Is it an explorer setup thing? I am not connected to a network and cannot find any set-up options in explorer that might give me a clue to fixing it.


Thanks MM
