Empty XML file
« on: April 05, 2006, 04:35:32 PM »
I'm using the standalone generator. After every run, the HTML and TXT versions are fine, but the XML file is always empty. There are no errors displayed.

Any ideas?

Hello,

please make sure that you have 0666 permissions set for this xml file.

Actually, the problem was that I specified web_root/generator/data/sitemap.xml as the path in the config. When I changed it to web_root/sitemap.xml, created an empty sitemap.xml file there set to 666, then it worked fine.

This helped me figure out this same issue.

This is definitely a bug ... if you try to have it write to the data directory for the sitemap.xml file it renders valid ror.xml, and sitemap*.html files, but  and empty sitemap.xml file (see example file listing below)

/path/to/xml-sitemaps/data/sitemap.xml - doesn't work
/path/tp/xml-sitemaps/sitemap.xml - does work

It would be nice if you could have it save to a directory you wish to have owned by the php user so that it could generate new html names if the size of the link lists grew and also it would have full write access to create any other files it needed... and you wouldn't have to have that directory have the ability to run php files...

I manually moved all the html files and the ror file to the generator's root dir and created the sitemap.xml file there and it seems to work.

Hello,

"Save sitemap to" setting is not allowed to point to generator/data/ folder. That folder is used for internal generator data only.
