New XAMPP security concept [solved]

Hello Everyone,

I have just downloaded the new XAMPP 1.8.0. and got the error at localhost/phpmyadmin

New XAMPP security concept:

Access to the requested object is only available from the local network.

This setting can be configured in the file "httpd-xampp.conf".

If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.

Error 403

localhost


So the solution for this is as follows:

1) Open httpd-xampp.conf which is at /opt/lampp/etc/extra/

2) Find <Directory "/opt/lampp/phpmyadmin">

3) Now just add Require all granted before </Directory>

4) So the code will look like this
    <Directory "/opt/lampp/phpmyadmin">
    AllowOverride AuthConfig Limit
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
    Require all granted
   </Directory>

5) Now finally Restart the xampp with this command /opt/lampp/lampp restart

That's it and you are Done!

Found it helpful ? Comment's please :)


Thanks for reading.
Enjoy & Be Open

    1. Hmm So you want the whole world to see your xampp right ? If so then please follow this ( this is for windows 7 folks)
      1) go to C:\xampp\apache\conf\extra\
      2) open httpd-xampp.conf file in wordpad or any editor.
      3) search for Order deny,allow
      Please ignore the first Order deny,allow. Look at the second Order deny,allow
      4) Now on next line of Order deny,allow put the # just before Deny from all so the code will look like this\

      Order deny,allow
      # Deny from all

      5) Finally restart the XAMPP & check if it is accessible.

      NOTE: This is not a secure way to open your XAMPP port world wide. You must have a password set for phpmyadmin . When not in use stop the APACHE etc.

    1. ok so do as following..
      1) open your terminal
      2) cd to that respective directory
      3) type this command sudo gedit httpd-xampp.conf
      if it is asking for password then use root password

      OR

      1) open terminal
      2) enter this command sudo nautilus
      3) now browse to this directory/file and you can write anything to that file.

  18. Open httpd-xampp.conf which is at /opt/lampp/etc/extra/
    no, it's at \xampp\apache\conf\extra
    and there is no such place in the file.
