On the site it says

"The default configuration is not good from a security point of view and it's not secure enough for a production environment - please don't use XAMPP in such environment. "

Can you tell me what that means?

I am using cPanel to load up my sites.

Get a shared hosting account with any of the hosting companies that are listed in the "thanks to" section of the PHP home page.  Just tell them what you want, and they will set up the correct environment for you.

Don't use it for production servers until it is hardened (could say that for all apache installations) but you said this is for a development environment so security is not an issue.
