According to WordPress codex for extra protection of WP-Config.php you can add in .htaccess (at very top):

<files wp-config.php>
order allow,deny
deny from all
</files>

Source: https://codex.wordpress.org/Hardening_WordPress

Question: How can I test live if external edit of wp-config.php is blocked? (as long as admin of server, or cpanel user of course I can edit all my files).

I think that every sysadmin or cpanel user who's concerned about cyber security want to test live if his security measures works or not.
