    Hi guys,
    my website is been coded to disallow the search engines to crawl
    www.auravedic.com/robots.txt

    i just cannot locate the robots.txt file in my Cpanal directory i searched every folder including the hidden files
    but just couldn't locate the file

    is there any other way to find the file or any other way so that google can crawl my website?

    Your file contained following texts.

    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /

    I will suggest you to create new file and upload to the directory.

    Your robots.txt is located on the root folder of your site like "public_html" if you are using c Panel.

    since you are running nginx, the root folder should be on:
    /var/www/auravedic.com
    or
    /var/www

    because you don't have root access. the root folder is the parent of the home folder.

    go to the public_html directory and you can see robots.txt there. download it via filezilla and then change it to :
    User-agent: *
    Disallow:
