WAMP says Forbidden You don't have permission to access /phpmyadmin/ on this server Windows 7 or 8

This will help you to use phpmyadmin application on your Windows 8 PC with WAMP.
phpmyadmin helps you manage your MySQL database system via a easy to use GUI.
It makes easy to do certain operations on database in few clicks. But when you install WAMP it gives you above error, so to solve that error follow below procedure.

First of all locate "phpmyadmin.conf" file under "C:\wamp\alias\". My WAMP installation is in C drive.

Then edit that file with any editor you have. I am using Notepad++.

You will find 

<Directory "c:/wamp/apps/phpmyadmin3.5.1/">

    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews

    AllowOverride all

        Order Deny,Allow

Deny from all

Allow from 127.0.0.1

</Directory>

Now  change "Deny from all" to "Allow from all".

If you want you can remove "Allow from 127.0.0.1" or can keep it.

Now open left click on WAMP icon and restart all services. After it turns green, visit "http://localhost/phpmyadmin/". You will find your phpmyadmin working.

Cheers....
