I've uploaded a robots.txt file to public_html directory which is visible from Edit files option at the plugin.
It looks like this:
# globalUser-agent: * Disallow: /*? Disallow: /wpress/cgi-bin/ Disallow: /wpress/wp-admin/ Disallow: /wpress/wp-includes/ Disallow: /wpress/wp-content/plugins/ Disallow: /wpress/wp-content/cache/ Disallow: /wpress/wp-content/themes/ Disallow: /wpress/trackback/ Disallow: /wpress/feed/ Disallow: */trackback/ Disallow: */feed/
My WP instal is at html_public/wpress/ directory, and WordPress Address (URL) option points there.
However if you browse http://tictocman.com/robots.txt it gets like this:
User-agent: * Disallow: /wpress/wp-admin/ Disallow: /wpress/wp-includes/
My guess is that WordPress virtual robots.txt is active and overriding the existing file.
Any clue on what is going on ?
