When we change robots.txt under website...SEO. A message appears A robots.txt file was detected. The changes you make here won't take effect until you delete the existing robots.txt file from the root directory of your store. So when we delete existing file and save changes, would system create a new robot.txt file automatically? Sent from my LND-L29 using Tapatalk

No, the robots.txt content will be output "on the fly". Physical file should be deleted

To clarify, that is how multiple storefronts implements separate robots.txt data for queries within the storefronts.  Same as for sitemap.xml.

@ecom lab just for my understanding, while we change/saves robots.txt file under website...seo in admin panel of cs cart Multivendor and when we delete physical file in root directory, does system.auto generates new robots.txt file in root directory? Sent from my LND-L29 using Tapatalk

No, the system will not generate physical files. But when you, bot or search engine requests the /robots.txt URL, correct content will be shown

@ecom lab but during configuration of Google merchant, Google team.is asking us to update physical file in root directory as well? So should we also update similer robots.txt file in root as well? Sent from my LND-L29 using Tapatalk

No, just update content of robots.txt in the panel.
