Nginx Configuration for Serving ads.txt

how to serve ads.txt with nginx

To serve an ads.txt file from a specific directory in Nginx, you can use the location block to define the route.

Below is an example configuration that directs requests for ads.txt to a file located in the directory /path/to/ads/.

server {
    listen 80;
    server_name; # Your domain name

    # Other configurations...

    # Route for ads.txt file
    location = /ads.txt {
        alias /path/to/ads/ads.txt; # Specify the absolute path to the ads.txt file
        try_files $uri $uri/ =404; # Attempt to serve the file, if not found, return a 404 error

    # Other location configurations...
