Problem with verification
« on: August 07, 2008, 04:28:38 PM »
I have several sitemaps but 1 of them is causing me a problem.

A condensed version is:-
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<urlset
      xmlns="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9"
      xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
      xsi:schemaLocation="
            http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9
            http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9/sitemap.xsd">
<!-- created with Standalone Sitemap Generator www.xml-sitemaps.com (10614) -->
<url>
       <loc>http://www.filipinovacationrentals.com/</loc>
       <priority>1.00</priority>
       <changefreq>monthly</changefreq>
       <lastmod>2008-08-07T14:45:55+00:00</lastmod> 
</url>
</urlset>

When I try to verify I get this:-

Schema validating with XSV 3.1-1 of 2007/12/11 16:20:05
Target: http://www.filipinovacationrentals.com/sitemap.xml
   (Real name: http://www.filipinovacationrentals.com/sitemap.xml
    Server: 4UH HTTPD Server powered by Apache)
docElt: {http://www.google.com/schemas/sitemap/0.84}urlset
No declaration for document root found, validation was lax
The schema(s) used for schema-validation had no errors
No schema-validity problems were found in the target

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Schema resources involved
Attempt to load a schema document from http://www.google.com/schemas/sitemap/0.84 (source: docElt) for http://www.google.com/schemas/sitemap/0.84, failed:

Not recognised as W3C XML Schema or RDDL: html
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Can you please help, am pulling my hair out, and I dont understand why it is going to google for schemas sitemap 0.84
Nothing I do seems to cure the problem of it not validating.

Hi,

I have sorted the problem. There was a rewrite rule in .HTACCESS that caused the problem.
