Should I set XAMPP into password? And if im setting it into password then I can't go to anymore. It's asking for password. Is it possible to remove it? Or what should I do? And is it possible to set phpSQLiteAdmin set to password or it's not needed?
Can someone help me please? Im pretty new on XAMPP.

If you are using Xampp only for development no need for password, but if it's for a production server set the passwords.

Process to set password is described on the installation page

Does that answer your question?

Actually the problem is this: If i set a password for XAMPP. Others wont be able to use phpmyadmin because they don't know the password for xampp:(

Are you putting XAMPP onto a publically accessible environment? DON'T! XAMPP is not built for security or speed, it is purely a development environment.

So I should better install manually mysql/php/apache2/phpmyadmin and such stuff?

The installation whether manually or via XAMPP is not the problem. It's how the environment is configured. XAMPP is configured with a focus on lots of features and just enough security. Having features turned on you don't use can affect performance. Not having the installation reasonably secured is a risk.

To get back to your question you could move the phpmyadmin installation from under the xampp directory (thereby getting around whether to set a password) and set it its own directory with the authentication changed to http or cookie.
