Laminas MVC: Configure Automatic Search Engine Protection

Hello from the other side! I’ve been developing web applications for a couple of years using Laminas MVC (formerly known as Zend Framework 3) and one thing that frustrate me the most in my past experiences is, when my development and staging sites were accidentally index by one of the search engines such as Google, Bing, Yahoo, DuckDuckGo, Baidu and Yandex. A common mistake that I need to think about and begin to deal with.

Now, I’d like to share my solution through this tutorial on how you can properly configure an automatic search engine protection in Laminas MVC. This tutorial is also inspired by Symfony 4.3: Automatic Search Engine Protection.

Please follow the tutorial here:

You are more than welcome to send me any feedback on it. Thanks!

Nice and concise tutorial.
Thanks for sharing.
