Step 4: Open the apache configuration file /opt/lamp/etc/extra/httpd-xampp.conf and replace a line ‘Require local’ with ‘Require all granted’ to XAMPP Server access to everyone if needed.

[root@linuxcnf ~]# vi /opt/lampp/etc/extra/httpd-xampp.conf

<Directory "/opt/lampp/phpmyadmin">
    AllowOverride AuthConfig Limit
    Require all granted
    ErrorDocument 403 /error/XAMPP_FORBIDDEN.html.var
</Directory>

Step 5: Allow from firewall to access the httpd service:

[root@linuxcnf ~]# firewall-cmd --permanent --add-port=80/tcp
success
[root@linuxcnf ~]# firewall-cmd --reload
success
[root@linuxcnf ~]#

Step 6: Finally, restart the lampp service to reload the configuration:

[root@linuxcnf ~]# /opt/lampp/lampp restart
Restarting XAMPP for Linux 7.3.6-2...
