Its warning you that anyone can change/alter that file.

you need to CHMOD the configuration file. It probably should be 644.

Weird, i changed httpd-xampp.conf chmod to 644 and reloaded apache/mysql but still same problem.
If i change something in this line, then it will say that "Wrong permissions on configuration file, should not be world writable!" all thought i tried to play with chmod but no luck, nothing didn't work. I just changed this line back to normal and then again it worked... How can i successfully add my ip to allow list, can't touch this without having problems :S
Code: Select all
<LocationMatch "^/(?i:(?:xampp|security|licenses|phpmyadmin|webalizer|server-status|server-info))">
        Order deny,allow
        Deny from all
        Allow from ::1 127.0.0.0/8 \
                fc00::/7 10.0.0.0/8 172.16.0.0/12 192.168.0.0/16 \
                fe80::/10 169.254.0.0/16

        ErrorDocument 403 /error/XAMPP_FORBIDDEN.html.var
</LocationMatch>

it phpMyAdmin squawks about a configuration file, its most likely the config.inc.php file that is the permissions problem.

I'm quite confident that 'their' code is unaware of what specific files were used to extend the Apache httpd.conf.

Just my opinion

A few things

A. In order to USE phpMyAmin, you do not need to be able to Write to the config.inc.php file. That file is used for CONFIGURING phpMyAdmin. The phpMyAdmin remote user needs Read access.

B. When you secure phpMyAdmin, usernames and passwords (based on MySQL Rights) will govern what can be done with/in phpMyAdmin.

In my opinion, you should spend some time learning about the Linux OS, the client server model and file permissions. You will need to understand these things to avoid security problems -- such as world-writable configuration files. This is particularly true if you are going to use widely distributed Open Source packages (like phpMyAdmin, WordPress, Joomla, etc). Everyone knows what files are 'where', and how to manipulate them.

If you haven't already, you should probably also learn an SSH (Secure Shell) tool like Tunnelier or Putty,

Good Luck
