I have apache/php/mysql running on my laptop, and use it to code locally before uploading to the server.
I've edited my hosts file on Windows, so that I can connect to apache via [local.example.com...]
This works fine when I am connected to the web, but does not when I am offline! I've been frustrated by a dodgy net connection recently, and it's even more frustrating that I can't even make the most of working off-line.

Apart from the "listen" directive, it was all there before. Adding the listen directive (which I may not have done correctly) doesn't seem to have helped :-(
I've tried it with my firewall on and off, no effect.
Any other clues?
