localhost error :: connection Failed The system returned: (111) Connection refused

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!

  1. Go to the LAN settings (in Chrome : Tools-> Options-> Under the hood -> Change Proxy setting -> LAN Setting)
  2. There will be a checkbox for "Bypass proxy server for local address"
  3. Tick the checkbox.
