robots.txt not working

  • Hi,

    i installed rank math a while ago and i was checking the SEO analysis and it says:

    Robots.txt file is missing or unavailable.
    i tried to search the problem on google and here in this site but couldnt find a solution.

    I looked on the server and there is no ,file, so the message is correct, but why doesnt Rank Math create the file as it is supposed to do?

    I hope u can help me fix this issue.

    Thanks in advance

  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math and sorry for any inconvenience that might have been caused due to that.

    Your robots.txt seems to be only accessible with a slash at the end: https://your domain/robots.txt/

    Could you please try creating a robots.txt file on your root folder and check if this is the same.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    Hello,

    I have checked and it seems like there is some misconfiguration in your hosting settings or in your .htaccess file. Could you let us know once your hosting support check it?

    Looking forward to help you.

    Hi,

    my hosting company checked it, and reconfigured the settings, can u check once more if everything is working now?

    Thanks
