my website is currently hosted on a local webserver running as Guest OS on Virtual Box. im running a CentOS 6.5.. now, here is the details for that OS,

CentOS IP Addr =

  NameVirtualHost *:80

  <VirtualHost *:80>
     ServerAdmin root@localhost
     DocumentRoot /var/www/html/test/public
     ErrorLog /var/www/html/logs/erro_log
     CustomLog /var/www/html/logs/access_log common

my /etc/hosts localhost.localdomain localhost               192,168.0.102
   ::1             localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6

Remove the 4th line. I think the comma (,) in the IP address is causing the problem. And another thing is that hosts file should be in the format

<ip-address> <hostname> <alias> ...

and not

<hostname> <ip-address>


Edit: You need to add this line           localhost

to your host machine's hosts file i.e. Windows 7 hosts file

I've updated the answer. I think you didn't map your local domain in your host OS's hosts file. – ASRM Mar 9 '14 at 13:30
