That will protect it from the folks hitting it via a browser but you may want to check permission on the directory itself to insure an insider can't mess with it (excluding your system admin, of course!)

The admin of the server must enable the .htacces override in the httpd.conf so it looks like
allow override ALL

And he should alo set the extension for the passwd file (Is set in Apache)

And I hope this can help you,
