    thanks a lot! But does these changes lead to anyone accessing my server?

    • KarSho says:

      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?

    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 (, still getting 403 error. Any suggestions?

    • KarSho says:

      Thanks for Comment Dude. Here I explained for phpmyadmin httpd.config. You can try same changes in apache httpd.config file. If you can’t let me know.

      • Dominic says:

        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.

    If you want to all particular hosts/computers,
    instead of
    Allow from all
    Allow from ::1
    you can use
    Allow from ipaddress1
    Allow from ipaddress2
