I recently removed a lot of unused software from my computer, and for some strange reason my computer does not appear to resolve the localhost (127.0.0.1). I am completely stumped as to why or even what would cause something like this as ipconfig does not return anything at all. As a result I cannot use any local server software such as apache or IIS and it is becoming very frustrating.
Any help would be appreciated as for once i'm not sure how to fix my own computer .
I can ping 127.0.0.1, which seems fine and localhost now seems to resolve back to 127.0.0.1 the problem now being that apache doesn't seem to respond to a request and just says "web site found"... without serving the response.
