sitemap.xml is blank, other files are normal
« on: January 26, 2006, 12:41:36 AM »
Hi there,

Just purchased Sitemap Generator :)

I had no trouble setting up the script.  I have set the configuration and had no problems.  I have triple checked and triple checked again to make sure all the paths are correct.  They are.  So are the folder/file chmod attributes.

When I go to Crawling and RUN the script, I get the following message:

Code: [Select]
Pages added to sitemap: 4
Pages scanned: 4 (19.5 Kb)
Pages left: 0 (+ 0 queued for the next depth level)
Time passed: 0:00
Time left: 0:00
Memory usage: 348.5 Kb
Total pages indexed: 4
Calculating changelog...
Creating HTML sitemap...

Yes it's a very small site :)

Anyway, I go into my sitemap.html file.  Everything normal, there are the 4 links

Go into my urllist.txt, everything is normal.  There are 4 links.

Go into my sitemap.xml file.  BLANK!  No Links!

-Also... if I delete my sitemap.xml file completely, it is recreated each time I run the crawl, but it is still blank no matter what.


PS:  Admin I am PM'ing you my link details so you can take a look.

Hello Kevin,

you have configured the xml sitemap filename to your generator data/ folder, while it should be stored in the root of your website (this is required by google sitemap protocol).

I've corrected the settings for your Generator instance, please check it - you should create sitemap.xml file as specified and set write permissions for it.

Let me know if that helps :)
