Chrome downloads http://localhost/ but http://127.0.0.1/ works fine
Here are the app versions:
- Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx
- Chrome 5.0.375.127 (with or without --enable-ipv6)
- Apache 2.2.14
When I go to http://localhost/ a file named "download" gets downloaded. I have no such file in my server, thus this is part of Chrome's strangenesses.
The file contains "<?php phpinfo(); ?>" the same content as my phpinfo.php file.
But I do have an index.html file containing just "It Works", but it doesn't get viewed unless I type explicitly http://localhost/index.html
BUT, when I type http://127.0.0.1/ without adding index.html to the URL, it works!
The strange thing is that this issue does not exist with Firefox. So when I type http://localhost/ I get my index.html as I expect it.
Before trying with Firefox, I thought it was an issue with my apache config, but now I don't know if Apache, Chrome, or both are the source of the problem.
Thanks for any help!
