So here is the issue. I am trying to remove the virtual robots.txt file in a wordpress site. I realized this was generated with a plugin (xml sitemap plugin) prior to me working on the site.
Here is what I have done. I generated a new robots.txt file, uploaded and ensure it was on the root. Unfortunately, it doesn't show up, it is as if the virtual one is overriding the actual root robots.txt. I can't even use a speed tool to analyze the site. Any help is much appreciated, thanks!
*NOTE Plugins I have related to this are Yoast SEO plugin and Google Sitemap Generator by Arne Brachold.
