Hello Chris Ridd,

C> In Apache you'd configure this as follows:

C> <Files passwd.txt>

or put it in some directory inside your web home and configure

<Limit GET>
deny from all
</Limit>

<Limit POST>
deny from all
</Limit>

for this directory. It's more safe, because some text editors leave
backup copy of the file, for example passwd.txt~. In this case you are
safe even if you forget to remove this file.
