• Make a backup copy of your .htaccess file. Use your backup file to recover if the following fails. Be sure to delete the backup file once you are finished.
  • Add the following to your .htaccess file. This example will protect both the configurtation.php and .htaccess files.
<Files .htaccess>
order allow,deny
deny from all
</Files>
<FilesMatch "configuration.php">
Order allow,deny
Deny from all
</FilesMatch>

You can also protect a lot of file extensions in one single rule. Exemple (the file names between ' ( ' and ' ) ' in this rule are the file extensions to protect ):

<FilesMatch "\.(htaccess|htpasswd|ini|phps|log|sh|conf)$">
Order allow,deny
Deny from all
</FilesMatch>
