How do I get the IP address for my localhost so that I can redirect my DNS?

2006-08-01 13:14:55, Category: Programming & Design
I think I have a pretty good idea how to get it, but I want to make sure that I am right. I have Apache 2.2.2, PHP 5.1.4, MySQL 5.0.21, and XAMPP for Windows. What is the best way to get my server up and running for everyday use, you know, email, file transfers, web design and so on?

    Not sure if this will answer your question, but try, start, run, type in cmd, type in either netstat, or ipconfig.

    http://localhost resolves to the loopback address 127.0.0.1. I'm not sure about dns config tho'

    local host is 127.0.0.1, or if you're referring to your service provider, drop to a command line prompt and run netstat -n that'll show you all current connections and ports that are open and listening for connections.
