How to Protect WordPress wp-config using htAccess

# protect wpconfig.php
<files wp-config.php>
order allow,deny
deny from all

The <files> tag is necessary and this post is placed here as some WordPress comment systems strip them out rendering the code meaningless.

the .htaccess file itself can be similarly protected.
