The htaccess file is used to limit/grant access to files in the current working directory and below only.

You are already taking a step in the right direction by disabling risky functions such as symlink. To further protect against unauthorized file access in PHP you also want to make sure you never pass unsanitized user input to any file access functions such as include/require. Remember, if user input does not make it into those functions it cannot do any harm. The risk comes when you need to dynamically include files based on user input.
