Hi I am getting

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".

when I go to http://localhost/xampp/
but I am on the local network, I am on the computer xampp is installed on.

All I have done so far is put some webpages in htdocs, setup apache to open default.php pages only and disabled folder browsing.

I have looked in httpd-xampp.conf but not sure what to do. I have also searched the forums but nothing helps.

ok just found out that if I use http://localhost/xampp/index.php it opens the xampp page, but I still get the same error if I try to open phpmyadmin.

Have I killed xampp? Should I re-install?

When you added your own files and folders to the htdocs folder did you remove the xampp index.php file and replace it with your own index file?
but I still get the same error if I try to open phpmyadmin.
Clear your browser's cached files often when working at localhost level or you may be served a cached page from your browser instead of a fresh page from the Apache server.
