I just re-installed Ubuntu because I had been playing with a driver which I shouldn't have done. I didn't have a backup (though I backed up the important documents etc etc) so I gotta reinstall these several applications.
So, I installed XAMPP and made so I could change stuff in htdocs. I wanted to access a database with phpmyadmin, but I couldn't access it because it says:
Access forbidden! 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 403 127.0.0.1 Apache/2.4.3 (Unix) OpenSSL/1.0.1c PHP/5.4.7
I've been searching on all over Google for solutions and absolutely none of them help. All of them doing some minor changes in "httpd-xampp.conf" and it seems to work for them, but it just doesn't work for me.
The context I was told to change in "httpd-xampp.conf" look like this:
# since XAMPP 1.4.3 <Directory “/opt/lampp/phpmyadmin”> AllowOverride AuthConfig Limit Order allow,deny Allow from all Require all granted </Directory>
# New XAMPP security concept <LocationMatch “^/(?i:(?:xampp|security|licenses|phpmyadmin|webalizer|server-status|server-info))”> Order deny,allow Allow from all Allow from ::1 127.0.0.0/8 \ fc00::/7 10.0.0.0/8 172.16.0.0/12 192.168.0.0/16 \ fe80::/10 169.254.0.0/16 ErrorDocument 403 /error/XAMPP_FORBIDDEN.html.var </LocationMatch>
What can I do to make phpmyadmin work?
