  • The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
  • If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
  • If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

Try Again

A extraordinarily boring and exact post but I think like me, a assortment of people utilize XAMPP for local growth and have abruptly establish that a Vista inform on or around the 11th March has meant you can’t browse to localhost on your machine despite no changes being made.

 

To repair this, you can do the following:

 

Go to C:Windowssystem32driversetc and drag the hosts file into your open text editor and find this line:

 

::1 localhost

 

comment out the line so it looks like this:

 

# ::1 localhost

 

Save the file, clear your browser’s cache once more and then try once again to go to http://localhost

 

Be sure to drag your host file to the desktop so you be able to save it and then drag it back to your etc folder.

 

The unique solution/discussion is here: this thread on the XAMPP forums

 

Expect this helps those who find localhost isn’t working with XAMPP at the instant.

This is a common problem. Solution is given below.First check your connection. Make sure that it is properly connected. If connection is fine then check your Mozilla connection. At Mozilla first go to tools. From tools go to options. From the option go to advance.  At advance you will see a tab named network beside general tab. Click at network tab. At network, you will see the connection. Right hand site of connection is setting. Click on the setting. If there is any proxy setting therefore make it no proxy. After all of these Ii hope your connection will be ok.
