Local Host Error .. Closing Windows CMD window = not good!

FYI all users of Windows. I discovered that my local web server stopped working when I closed my Windows CMD window. I use the following command line to start up a local web server: python -m SimpleHTTPServer.

Makes sense, I suppose, that the web server craps out when the CMD window is closed, but it took moi quite a while to figure out why my local web-served data visualization file worked one minute and I got an error the next minute (http://localhost:8000/basic_charts.html Error message: This site can’t be reached … localhost refused to connect ).

Reason: I had closed the Windows CMD window somehow, somewhere along the way!  Newbie Noob error. Oh, well. Still learning!newbie here - Peter Bakke
