Subject Re: [users@httpd] Cannot access any webpage using localhost
Date Mon, 07 Nov 2005 15:08:34 GMT
Problem solved (at last!). It was not enough to disable my firewall (Armor2net). I have to
uninstall it, and then everything worked fine. I install another firewall and it's ok now.
Thanks for your response.

  Looks like you have everything covered. You checke your apache config, your hosts file,
you pinged, and set everything in your apache conf file that would cause any problems.
All I can think of is that something went wrong in the installation, it happens sometimes
with the msi binary.

    I try to disable anti-virus, firewall, but nothing works.

    For two days I'm trying to solve the problem without success.
