If you are trying to access localhost API to your Debug Android/Mobile App You need to follow below-mentioned Steps: 

To connect to a localhost server in base_url on an Android/Mobile app API, follow these steps:

  1. Find the IP address of your computer where the localhost server is running. You can do this by opening the Command Prompt on your computer and typing "ipconfig" (for Windows) or "ifconfig" (for Mac or Linux). Look for the IP address listed under "IPv4 Address".

  2. Replace "localhost" in your Baseurl with the IP address you just found. For example, if your Baseurl is currently "http://localhost/projectFolder/api", you would replace "localhost" with your IP address, like this: "".

  3. Make sure your Mobile device is connected to the same network as your computer. This is important because the IP address you just found is only accessible on your local network.

  4. In your Android app code, replace the Baseurl with the updated URL that includes your IP address.

  5. Test your app to make sure it can connect to the localhost server. If you encounter any issues, check your firewall settings and make sure the server is running on your computer.
