Initial Code
From the WampServer icon, left click, select Apache > Alias Directories > .../phpmyadmin/ > Edit alias to open the alias configuration file and then changed: 

<Directory "c:/wamp/apps/phpmyadmin3.5.1/">
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
    AllowOverride all
        Order Deny,Allow
  Deny from all
  Allow from

such that the Allow line became: 

        Allow from ::1
