I would like to serve /robots.txt without a redirect to /robots.txt/.

I tried to create an application and serve it as a static file but the redirect still exists.

I would appreciate your help.

If you used our installer then one way is by adding the following two lines at your /home/username/webapps/django_app/apache2/conf/httpd.conf file:

LoadModule alias_module      modules/mod_alias.so
Alias /robots.txt /absolute/path/to/your/robots.txt

You will need to restart your apache stack, using the /home/username/webapps/django_app/apache2/bin/restart command, for changes to take effect.
