Hello everybody,
I installed Apache in my PC and actually I want to host a website from my PC which should be available to other PCs in the local network when they hit my IP. I am really new to using Apache So please tell me what I should actually do.Right now when I hit my IP from other computer it says "Access Denied" .I checked all the services are running.
I also have WAMP running on my PC.

Please help.

I think you simply need to allow access to your host (root directory). Add the directive
Allow from all

Hi

Took me quite a long time there.But I got the problem solved.I had to do something in the firewall here.Now I can access webfiles in my machine from other machines in the network.

But I seem to have stumbled across another problem.I am not sure I should put this here!

I got WAMP running.But I felt uneasy with the PHPmyadmin displaying thre warning notice that the root user has no password and all.So I gave a password for the root and updated accordingly in the config.inc.php . Now when I try to access PHPMyadmin it says :

#1045 - Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)

Can anyone help.

I can access Mysql from the console using the same password.

Please help.
