Background Run doesn't seem to work
« on: July 22, 2008, 12:07:36 AM »

Just bought the script. works well when keep the browser open.

But if I check the box run in background and close the browser, it doesn't work in background.

I did several tests by creating sitemaps for a couple of websites having no more than 8 links/pages. and it never creates their sitemap.

Please advise.

unfortunately, some servers do not allow PHP scripts to enable "run in background" behaviour and interrupt them as soon as you close the page. You can setup a scheduled task (cron job) in hosting control panel to run it in background or use command line if you have SSH access to your host though.
