I'm so confused about this "robots.txt" file. My server has on it "WebApplication1" and "WebApplication2" and "WebApplication3" So, in order to access my site, you type "www.[mysite].com/[the specific one] Now, I read through the google stuff about robots.txt and it says that "" is valid and not ""

The structure on the file system is like so:

-> WebApplication1
-> WebApplication2
-> WebApplication3

If I place the robots.txt file in C:\NetbeansProjects, when I type "" I get a 404 error (The requested resource () is not available).

So, can someone explain where I should put the robots.txt file on my server?

Hello, I also have such problem so please help us to find solution .

I have app that has controller on */robots.txt requests
but my app cannot get such request through GlassFish and server return 404.
I don't want return on request stable file, I want generate it with my app, what changes I need to do with GlassFish setting, domain.xml configuring ?
Also I have app request controller */sitemap.xml and without any changes in settings I got generated file from my app, so this situation only for robots.txt file !
