I installed the standalone version on my host, where I administrate my domain but:
- anyfile attribute can not be changed, they stay on 644 (no rights to change them)
- I run the xml-generator index at distance, its stores very well the changes in my config.inc.php on site, it runs very well and stores a ror and sitemap.xml new file on my web site.
By the way, users : take care to install a .htaccess file to securise the access at the xml-generator files and your settings, so that anyone cannot launch a sitemap with other wrong settings.
when I set a cron task on my host, I can not set it with an executable line but an URL page to start.
So /usr/local/bin/php /var/www/62/p/r/o/mysite.com/www/xml-generator/runcrawl.php
is not allowed, but yourdomain.com/your_sitemap_order/index.php?op=crawl&gb=true&crawl=Run as I saw it on the other forum can be done as if I would have typed it in my browser bar.
In this last case, the task is launched by no message in log, and the sitemap.xml file is not written.
The cron program "runcrawl.php" and index page are the problems at first glance.
Waiting for a new program version ...or your answer taking into account that my website is hosted and shared with others with security and I am not the provider nor the administrator.
