Receiving HTTP 403 error (Forbidden)
« on: September 27, 2008, 03:08:48 AM »
I used the free online sitemap generator to generate a sitemap for my website [external links are visible to admins only] .  I then uploaded the xml version to the main area of my website.  Everything looked good (as far as I could tell) but then when I tried to upload to google as well as when I later tested it here on this sites tool section I received a General HTTP 403 error (Forbidden).  I can put the sitemap in my browser window and look at it so I don't understand where the problem is.  Here is the url for the sitemap --[external links are visible to admins only]  Can someone help me determine what I need to do to get this work properly.

Thanks so much.

When I'm trying to open your sitemap I'm getting an error too:

You do not have permission to access http://domain.com/sitemap.xml

Data files must be stored on the same site they are linked from.
You might want to contact your host to resolve the issue.
