Hi I clicked create the right robots.txt by accident, so I turned it off, but now search console can't fetch the robots.txt when I use the testing tool, the robots.txt can be viewed on the url, and google bot is allowed to view it, but for some reason it can't fetch the robots, web.dev also gives this error

Error

1
<html><meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;/.well-known/captcha/"></meta></head></html>
Syntax not understood

Hello.

You can send me the contents of the file robots.txt?

I don't think it's the contents of the robots file, I think it is being redirected for some reason, as search console and web.dev aren't picking it up, but the url is visible and isn't blocked

Most likely, for requests from third-party services, the server asks you to enter a captcha. Perhaps this is DDoS protection

In any case, you can disable the plugin and check if it solved the problem.
