    Question: How can I protect my Joomla 3.x configuration.php file from possibly being viewed due to server misconfiguration?

    Answer: Move it to the |Home directory (above public_html directory) which can only be accessed via FTP or CPanel File Manager.

     Pros: configuration.php will be better protected and your site will be more secure.

    Cons: No longer possible to edit configuration.php via Global Configuration in Joomla Administrator. The file must be manually edited.

    Step 1: Move configuration.php from the public_html directory (folder) to the Home directory above using FTP or CPanel File Manager.

    Tip: If you have more than one Joomla site involved make a folder for the file to keep it separate otherwise it could be overwritten. eg:(/home/cpanelusername/sitename/configuration.php)

     Step 2:  Edit the files that contain the path to configuration.php.
    [joomla root]/includes/defines.php
    [joomla root]/administrator/includes/defines.php

    This is the constant to modify
    define( 'JPATH_CONFIGURATION', JPATH_ROOT );

    For example if Joomla is installed in the public_html folder (web root) then to move the file up one level into the Home directory and into a folder named "sitename" the constant will look like this:
    define( 'JPATH_CONFIGURATION', JPATH_ROOT.'/../sitename' );
