Fresh install of xampp. I can surf to http://localhost (which redirects to http://localhost/xampp as expected) and see xampp's welcome page. However, when I try to access phpmyadmin, I get the nonsense error message:
New XAMPP security concept:
Access to the requested directory 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.
Apache/2.4.3 (Unix) OpenSSL/1.0.1c PHP/5.4.6
I AM accessing from the local host, so that doesn't make any sense.
Any workaround, other than commenting out the "new security concept" restrictions completely??? I do want to keep the access restricted to local network only (btw, looking at the httpd-xampp.conf it seems to be supposed to restrict access to the local _host_ rather than local network, but anyway), but not so much that it is not accessible at all in any way!!!
