DB Robots.txt is an easy (i.e. automated) solution to creating and managing a robots.txt file for your site. It is easy to create a robots.txt without FTP access.

It automatically includes the host-rule for Yandex.

- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
Will it conflict with any existing robots.txt file?
If a physical robots.txt file exists on your site, WordPress won’t process any request for one, so there will be no conflict.
Will this work for sub-folder installations of WordPress?
Out of the box, no. Because WordPress is in a sub-folder, it won’t “know” when someone is requesting the robots.txt file which must be at the root of the site.
