I've been building a commercial website and I'm ~30% finished, but there's a little problem I've been dealing with that I think I can stop but before I do all that I want to know if it works.
So here's the deal. Right now I'm running Apache on my machine and everything is working and I'm using 192.168.1.56 for my ip address which is nice because since I have my ports forwarded I can get to the website from outside by using my public IP.
That being said, I have a very finicky wireless connection to my router that drops everytime someone nearby uses a cordless phone. Running a line isn't a real option right now, but possibly changing my Apache setup to see me as 127.0.0.1 instead of 192.168.1.56 might.
The question. I know squat about localhost and 127.0.0.1 and how windows deals with them, so if I change my Apache configuration(possibly breaking it in the process) to accept from 127.0.0.1 will that bypass the router and let me work even if the local network is down or will it still try to run through the router and back to my machine?
