Hi all,
I have 2 machines , both with 2 static IP's ,
when i tried to connect phpmyadmin remotely , i got this message :

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".

i need some help about :
1- how to configure the server to allow only for my IP to connect remotely with keep server secured .
2- which file i have to edit and it's location ?

thanks for help :)

The problem(s) with 'New XAMPP Security Concept' is somewhat explained here: ... -security/

You can start by adding the static IP of your remote machine to the 'Allow from' construct ...

The backslashes at the end-of-line position mean that the directive continues on the next line.

You can (as I recall) add a single IP/Host by simply adding it to any line in the Allow From Directive, as long as it is offset by a space.


Code: Select all
 Allow from ::1 xx.yy.zz.nnn \

where xx.yy.zz.nnn is your dotted quad IPv4 address should work (or a :: absolute IPv6 or hostname should work too ).

Good Luck
