My office is a Windows environment, but I have just set up a linux (lubuntu 12.10) machine for me to develop on since I cannot access the command line in Windows.
I have set up the LAMP stack on the machine (which I've done numerous times before without fail), but I cannot access
localhost, I get a connection refused error.
In order to use the internet on the machine I've had to add our proxy details to
/etc/environment - the internet works fine.
If I get rid of the proxy settings, I can then access
localhost, but that of course means I cannot get on the internet.
So how do I access localhost with a proxy enabled?
