    • Yes Thrishma. Actually anyone can access your local-server. Here we are giving permission to all, to access PhpMyAdmin. You can set password for your MySQL. But any-one can open your file. So, it’s not required. That’s Localhost default password is ‘Empty’. Got it?

  1. Hi, I’m trying to use my apache server on WAMP from ( a another PC on my home network, and b) from outside the network. I’ve followed the steps above, but using the httpd.conf file. I can’t get access to the server still. Internally I’m typing the local ip of the PC with the apache server running (192.168.0.4), still getting 403 error. Any suggestions?

      • Thanks for getting back to me, have made these changes to httpd.config but still getting the same error. Have also checked that windows firewall is allowing TCP confections to the server via port 80. Am stumped.
