If there is not a way to do this then this concept doesn't work for the way most web servers are deployed.

If you just want to access your website, you had to change nothing!
the new security concept just save the administration tools of xampp (phpmyadmin, admin control panel, example applications, etc.).
Just create a folder in htdocs for your website (or put it directly in htdocs. delete the index.php file there).
