  Apache Web-Serving with Mac OS X: Part 1
Subject:   Can access using 127.0.0.1 but not http://localhost

I'm using OS X.1.


I've turned web Sharing on, and can access my apache server using http://127.0.0.1, but when I attempt to access it at http://localhost, Explorerer gives me a "connection failure" error.


I am connected to the Internet via a modem at the time, but that shouldn't be a problem, should it.


so, any clues?

    I've had this happen infrequently as well, but nothing that I could pin my fingers on. Do you have any other browsers on your machine? I've found that when IE chokes, I can normally use iCab or others to open localhost with no difficulties.
