Accessing a site via localhost instead of IP
How do i set it up so my php files in my sites folder can be viewed with just the command
instead of the default
the bottom one works fine but where do i need to change it so in my browser i can just enter localhost
check your /etc/hosts; it should have an entry 127.0.0.1 localhost. then you can just use http://localhost/. you can't just use localhost/ because that is not necessarily http and your browser may interpret that as a search or something.
