I have recently come across an issue where my Localhost Apache server (and/or MySQL server) will interfere with some random websites.
Most recently I discovered the localhost was causing issues on a Joomla website were a single component would throw a 404 component not found error.
since 99% or more of the web continues to work correctly I assume there are 2 primary causes and 3 possible solutions.
Causes 1. code issues with the website/Joomla component 2. localhost apache configuration issues
- Fix the code issues (if it's your site/component)
- fix the issue with the localhost configuration
- stop the localhost server when your surfing the web
I need guidance on what in php code for a Joomla component would cause such issues, and how to fix those code issues. I would hate to see someone happen to have a localhost instance running and have an issue with one of my sites.
