NGINX rewrite rules for Robots.txt

All in One SEO no longer generates it’s own robots.txt as a dynamic page. Instead it uses the robots_txt filter in WordPress to tap into the default robots.txt created by WordPress.

This means that rewrite rules are no longer needed for NGINX servers.

When you use the Robots.txt feature in AIOSEO, you’re modifying the default robots.txt crated by WordPress.

Some configurations of NGINX require rewrite rules to be added to the NGINX configuration file.

If you’re getting a 404 Page Not Found error for your robots.txt on NGINX, then please add the following rewrite rule in your NGINX config file.

NOTE:  If you don’t know what to do with these, then you’ll need to contact your hosting company for support.

rewrite ^/robots.txt$ /index.php?aioseo_robots_path=root;
