Apache Configuration Question

Magento Installation error..redirects to localhost?

I am unable to login into magento admin.

In magento, (in newest release..)

it needs proper domain to login ...but how it is
possible in a local machine...

I found some solution ...in magento forum here...
http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/4337/P15/

They asked to change localhost to http://127.0.0.1

but when tried it redirects to localhost...?!

Answer Source

Create a "fake" domain name, something like magento.dev. Setup an apache virtual host with this name, and add an entry to your hosts file that points magento.dev to 127.0.0.1
