This is your root directory /www , any files that you wish to view through apache need to go in this directory, as of phpdev5 the root directory is not accessible from anywhere except localhost or that when you are connected to the Internet and differing ISP's aside the outside world can not see this directory unless you change the apache configuration. Any really sensitive data should be kept in http://localhost/private/ which is accessible ONLY to your machine and is above the web root, the same can be said for http://localhost/phpmyadmin/ , this default can be easily overridden in the httpd.conf or via spiny, just fire up spiny and select safe-mode to restrict access to this directory. If you have just fired up apache for the first time please check everything is working by going here
By Default only the http://localhost/public & http://localhost/site/ directories are accessible from the outside world.
