The solution is to add a line in your "/etc/hosts" file.

My computer is Nelly, and i'm doing localhosting sooo:

127.0.0.1 nelly.local. nelly

The format is:

[ipaddress] [longname] [shortname]

Obviously without the brackets.
Don't know your name? Try pinging yourself or doing an:
>nslookup [shortname]


Cheers!
