    It is can't find 'localhost' are you sure the webserver is running properly?

    Is this Windows or Linux?
    What server is running - IIS, Apache, etc...?

    Have you tried a reboot?

    Safari can?t open the page ?[url]http://localhost/?[/url] because it could not connect to the server ?localhost?.
    is the message...

    It shouldn't be necessary, but sometimes Mac OS X gets fussy, and
    prefers 127.0.0.1 instead of localhost. Worth trying anyway.

    Check the personal web sharing checkbox (if you haven't already) is ticked
    on you sharing tab of system preferences. Same happened to me a while ago,
    it just seemed to switch itself off, couldn't think of any reason why, but
    it solved the problem.

    if http://localhost works in a browser then your local server it's OK so:
    do this
    go to c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
    open hosts with text editor and write:
    127.0.0.1 localhost
    this is all you need to make dreamweaver will work very well :)
