I’ve looked into this problem of: “Your web server is configured incorrectly. As a result, configuration files with sensitive information are accessible from the outside. Please contact your hosting provider”. I know there are other posts about this but i’ve followed everything they’ve said which is roughly close to allowing the .htaccess to overwrite server configurations, but at my server stands now, it does allow .htaccess overrides. I don’t even know what this warning means considering it has no details about it. What do i do?

<Directory />
Options FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride All
</Directory>

Change \"None\" to \"All\" in server configuration file(httpd.conf).

After changing restart your server.

and check if it is still showing the message and also
check if you are able to access app/etc/config.xml from browser.

This is what i have done when i was facing this problem.
Hope same works for you.
