[Mediawiki-l] novice: securing in-place installation.

I ran the in-place installation, and it went like a breeze.  That said, I 
don't understand a couple of things...

/var/www/wiki has a dump of the mediawiki-1.2.0 stable tar-ball.
Ran through the basic install which means putting LocalSettings.php
in the same directory as index.php (/var/www/wiki)
I noticed that localsettings.php has the DB name, username and PW in it.
If one is readable, won't the other be as well ? Is that safe?
