Robots.txt blocked

  • Hello,

    I cannot make changes to my robots.txt.

    It says: Contents are locked because robots.txt file is present in the root folder.

    Can you please help?

    Thanks, Arien

    To fix this you will need to login to your site via FTP and delete the robots.txt file that is present on your site root.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    Hi,

    Please guide to edit robots.txt file. I moved from Yoast to your plugin.

    Hi Shailesh,

    First, you will need to remove any robots.txt file that might be present in the root folder of your website.

    Then, the changes you make will take effect.

    The robots.txt editor of Rank Math is available at WordPress Dashboard > Rank Math > General Settings > Edit Robots.txt

    Hope that helps and please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.
