    Hey guys i wonder if you could help me this this problem i am having.

    I have installed wordpress on my local apache server and mysql db with no problems. i can go to:

    http://localhost/wordpress

    and the front page comes up fine, however, if i try and access http://localhost/wordpress/wp-login.php it trys to resolve it as http://www.localhost.com/wordpress/wp-login.php which obviously does not work

    this also happens on all other files except the main index. i have tried using the ip address both external and internal and still no luck.

    All other locally hosted sites such as joomla and other cms systems are all accessable and work fine on localhost. its just wordpress.

    anyone had the same problem or can help at all please..

    Thanks

    Coley
