If you are using Apache, make sure the .htaccess file exists. If not, copy it from .htaccess.sample

If you are using nginx, refer to this wiki: https://wiki.magento.com/display/m1wiki/Configuring+nginx+for+Magento+1.x

  • that page was not updated, config is broken...

Make sure Apache mod rewrite is enabled. Also it is not recommended to use localhost, configure Virtual Host instead.
