Thread: C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts

    I have Apache installed under Vista. Today I notices that web browser does
    not open URLs http://localhost/.... , but only

    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
    # space.
    # Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
    # lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
    # For example:
    # # source server
    # # x client host localhost
    # ::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?

    Thank you
