Hi,
I create one

robots.txt

file, within
C:\inetpub\wwwroot

within the current Win 2008 server, but when I'm to acccess this

http://my-friend.co/robots.txt

I get this error

SITE"


Internet Information Services 7.5



Error Summary 
HTTP Error 403.4 - Forbidden

The page you are trying to access is secured with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).


Detailed Error Information 


Module
IIS Web Core 

Notification
BeginRequest 

Handler
StaticFile 

Error Code
0x80070005 



Requested URL
http://my-friend.co:80/​robots.txt 

Physical Path
C:\inetpub\wwwroot\​robots.txt 

Logon Method
Not yet determined 

Logon User

Most likely causes: •Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is enabled for the URL requested.
•The page request was made over HTTP, but the server requires the request from a secure channel that uses HTTPS

If you can access it at https://my-friend.co/robots.txt, then you have the whole site set up as an HTTPS site.  Your self-signed certificate will be a problem to outsiders.

Thanks.
But the search engine does expect to access this

http://my-friend.co/robots.txt

instead of accessing "https", doesn't it?

I don't think it cares.  It will access thru the same protocol as it used to access the main site.
