How do I enable loopback connections on Ubuntu 14.04?
I’m attempting to install Koken on Ubuntu 14.04 LAMP, and am getting the error: “The theme is not able to make contact with your Koken installation. Contact your host to see if they are blocking loopback connections.”
Apparently this is a common problem for Koken installs on shared hosts, but I haven’t found any specific instructions on enabling this for my own server. The closest I’ve gotten is opening up /etc/hosts and noticing an entry that refers to “ip6-loopback”.
Thank you for any help!
Here is the contents of my etc/hosts:
127.0.0.1 localhost 127.0.1.1 elcontraption.com elcontraption # The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts ::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback fe00::0 ip6-localnet ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix ff02::1 ip6-allnodes ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
