Installing MediaWiki via Bitnami for an offline personal wiki. Is it okay to set the domain to 127.0.0.1?

I'm trying to set up an offline, personal wiki for a project. No one needs to access it except myself. I've installed XAMPP and downloaded the Bitnami MediaWiki for XAMPP installer. I was going to leave the domain as '127.0.0.1' but noticed there's a warning in the installer to not set it as 'localhost'. I thought I'd double check, does that mean specifically not 'localhost' or not '127.0.0.1' as well? Apologies for the dumb question! I'm very much a luddite when it comes to networking matters.

i think its because often people install on localhost and then try to access elsewhere and it doesnt work, maybe. I'm not sure what the warning is about but it should be fine to set to any of localhost, 127.0.0.1, ::1, etc
