local host (127.0.0.1) is only accessable from the local pc.

You need to do a bunch of things to access that same server on the internet.

You need to configure the server to listen on a ip address (one on your lan)
Foward the port that the webserver is running on, from the router to the pc.
Make sure that port you are using is not blocked by isp.
Give that ip addres sto the ppl who want to access the server.
