Newbie Question
« on: May 31, 2007, 01:05:40 PM »
So - I installed it - it creates the file - I can view it via ftp - but it is a 404 error when trying to access through browser or Google tries to access.

sitemap.xml is set at 0666 and the other files/folders referred to in the documentation are set appropriately.

Any clues on how to get this pesky critter to show?

No I didn't!

Basically the site map wont show - the path to the sitemap is a 404 error ([external links are visible to admins only])

Anyone with any clues on why this would be the case? All the other files in that public_html folder show just fine...!?

Now I feel really dumb

In my .htaccess file was the following:

RewriteRule (.*)\.xml(.*) $1.php$2 [nocase]


So as soon as the file was attempted to be accessed it was being rewritten as a php and so was not available.....
