Question Using "localhost" as the hostname in my request URL does not work. Why?
Answer If any of the following URLs work:
  • http://<serverName>/helloWorld.html
  • http://<IP_Address>/helloWorld.html
(where helloWorld.html is a simple HTML file sitting in your webserver's document root)

But the following URL fails:
  • http://localhost/helloWorld.html

  • Then you may find message #96985 posted in the SE Interest list to be enlightening.
    Basically, your browser may be configured in a manner that prevents localhost from working as it should.
