I installed my apache server in my PC, but yet, I couldnt load "localhost" . the error was. I was using Mozilla Firefox and IE both.
While trying to retrieve the URL: http://localhost/
The following error was encountered:
- Connection Failed
The system returned:(111) Connection refused
Finally the solution I found was interesting!
- Go to the LAN settings (in Chrome : Tools-> Options-> Under the hood -> Change Proxy setting -> LAN Setting)
- There will be a checkbox for "Bypass proxy server for local address"
- Tick the checkbox.
