I've trying to generate a sitemap for a secure (only) site:
[external links are visible to admins only]
I've tried doing a 'Header View' via the tools section of this site, and they keep coming back with 302 (Redirect's), which is obviously bad.
But when I check the http headers from my browser (using firefox's webmaster plugin) it shows the headers as 200 (OK).
Further, looking at the logs on the web server, I see the same thing:
202.*.*.* myguardian.com.au - [30/Jul/2008:22:25:47 -0700] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 200 9923 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:188.8.131.52) Gecko/2008070208 Firefox/3.0.1"
184.108.40.206 myguardian.com.au - [30/Jul/2008:22:26:17 -0700] "GET / HTTP/1.0" 302 - "http://www.myguardian.com.au/" "Mozilla/5.0 (XML Sitemaps Generator 1.0)"
What's interesting is that XMl Sitemaps uses a HTTP 1.0 client, while firefox is HTTP 1.1.
Does anyone know if there is a web server setting that might be causing non 1.1 HTTP clients to be redirected? Or is there something else going on here which I've failed to pickup on.
