Following some guide on the web, I have created the following .htaccess for my WordPress installation:
# protect the htaccess file <files .htaccess> order allow,deny deny from all </files> # protect wpconfig.php <files wp-config.php> order allow,deny deny from all </files>
chmod wp-config.php 600 and .htaccess 644.
Which is the simplest way I can test if it is working properly? In case, I can create some other files to verify the work. I only want to be sure.
