Hi guys,

I have MAMP installed on my Macbook Pro (OS X 10.8.2). Both Apache Server and MySql server are in green lights in MAMP. But I could NOT access localhost; I'm able to reach 127.0.0.1. (both localhost and 127.0.0.1 were working fine before.)

leihetekiMacBook-Pro:~ leihe$ ping localhost

ping: cannot resolve localhost: Unknown host

When I tried to access localhost in safari, it shows:

Safari can't open the page "http://localhost/" because Safari can't fine the server "localhost". 

In apache_error.log, it shows:

[Tue Feb 18 14:30:43 2014] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] client denied by server configuration: /Users/leihe/Desktop/Sites/.DS_Store

My hosts file is located in private/etc and looks like this:

# Host Database

#

# localhost is used to configure the loopback interface

# when the system is booting.  Do not change this entry.

##

127.0.0.1       localhost

255.255.255.255 broadcasthost

::1             localhost

fe80::1%lo0     localhost

I also tried flushing DNS sever.

Any solutions would be much appreciated!!
