I have Apache installed under Vista. Today I notices that web browser does
not open URLs http://localhost/.... , but only http://127.0.0.1/...
I commented the last string of hosts file so that it now looks like this and
everything works perfectly now:
# Copyright (c) 1993-2006 Microsoft Corp.
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
# For example:
# 22.214.171.124 rhino.acme.com # source server
# 126.96.36.199 x.acme.com # x client host
# ::1 localhost
Who knows what's the meaning of the last string: ::1 localhost ?
Is there any place in the world where the syntax is explained?
