666 is still world writable. 755 is also unnecessary, since this file is not executable. A more sensible choice would be 644.
Doh! I meant to write:
Which gives the owner full privileges (read, write, execute) but only read/execute for the group & world.
You instructions make your Apache configuration file world WRITABLE. No sane web developer or system administrator should do this. Please consider chmod 666 instead!
