How to Protect Your WordPress wp-config.php File and Your .htaccess File

The wp-config.php file contains all the confidential details of your site. So it’s pretty important that you protect it at all costs. An easy way to protect this file is to simply place the following code in your .htaccess file on your server:

<Files wp-config.php>
order allow,deny
deny from all
</Files>

We can protect our wp-config.php file as mentioned above, but what about protecting the .htaccess file itself? Don’t worry, we can use the same .htaccess file to protect itself from being preyed upon. You just need to place below code in your .htaccess file:

<Files .htaccess>
order allow,deny
deny from all
</Files>
