    can not browse localhost


    Hi

    I can ping localhost (127.0.0.1) but I can not browse localhost. Is anybody give me yours httpd.conf file to have a look. May be problem in httpd.conf file, but I am not sure. Please help me to run my Apache web server.

    Thanks

    Hi, if you only are able to ping 127.0.0.1 it means that you network adapter is not set up as it should. It will only prove that you have your IP working
    Since 127.0.0.1 is local-interface upon your IP-stack.
    (I.e. has nothing to do with the physical network interface)
    Can you ping anything localy on the network?

    Ok,
    have you tried to check your config file for a good syntax?
    Code:
    apachectl configtest
