Error when trying to access XAMPP from a network

I have use XAMPP for my local webserver. When I try to open phpmyadmin from other computer (network), I get this error :

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".

This is related with default “httpd-xampp.conf” config to allow access from local server. We can remove this error and open XAMPP phpmyadmin from network with some of modified in “httpd-xampp.conf”. This is steps how to access XAMPP phpmyadmin from network :
1. Stop Apache and Mysql from XAMPP Control Panel
2. Open “httpd-xampp.conf” from button “config” in XAMPP Control Panel
3. Search “<Directory “C:/xampp/phpMyAdmin”>”. I am use windows. So, that is how look phpmyadmin in my XAMPP config. This is original contents of “phpmyadmin tag”

Alias /phpmyadmin "C:/xampp/phpMyAdmin/"
<Directory "C:/xampp/phpMyAdmin">
    AllowOverride AuthConfig
    Require local
    ErrorDocument 403 /error/XAMPP_FORBIDDEN.html.var

This is after modified :

Alias /phpmyadmin "C:/xampp/phpMyAdmin/"
<Directory "C:/xampp/phpMyAdmin">
    AllowOverride AuthConfig Limit
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
    Require all granted

4. Save file and Start Apache and Mysql again.

Using this method, I can open XAMMP phpmyadmin from network.
