    Block viewing of .htaccess

    I used the below to block viewing of .htaccess but it doesn't seem to be working. I can type in the link and view the file. Is there another way to do this?

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

    Try amending:

    order allow,deny

    to:

    order deny,allow

    Also in the web hosts control panel you should have an option to turn off all directory listing.
