Subject Re: [users@httpd] how to enable 127.0.0.1 in httpd.conf

////////////////////////////////////////////////////
Test
Now you can start your Apache HTTP Server by
immediately running:

$ PREFIX/bin/apachectl -k start

and then you should be able to request your first
document via URL http://localhost/. The web page you
see is located under the DocumentRoot, which will
usually be PREFIX/htdocs/. Then stop the server again
by running:

$ PREFIX/bin/apachectl -k stop
////////////////////////////////////////////////////////


The strange thing is that I went to the link as above.
It is the official install guide. http://localhost
should work for the test step.

What do you think it is wrong with my system
configuration?
