Search engines indexation of your Gitea installation

By default your Gitea installation will be indexed by search engines. If you don't want your repository to be visible for search engines read further.

Block search engines indexation using robots.txt

To make Gitea serve a custom robots.txt (default: empty 404) for top level installations, create a file called robots.txt in the custom folder or CustomPath

Examples on how to configure the robots.txt can be found at

User-agent: *
Disallow: /

If you installed Gitea in a subdirectory, you will need to create or edit the robots.txt in the top level directory.

User-agent: *
Disallow: /gitea/
