What gives? When I view the page as "http://localhost:8080/" from the local machine, I can create the first (administrator) account and login without any problem. However, when I view the page from any other machine via it's public and/or private IPs, or even http://127.0.0.1:8080/ LOCALLY, I experience the "can't login or create the first (administrator) account" problem. What is going on?

Drupal uses the hostname to determine which site it should display in a multisite environment.

If localhost, 127.0.0.1 and the rest should all provide the same page, the folder in sites must be named "default", not for example "localhost".
