I've just installed the standalone xml sitemap generator and done a crawl, but I have a few problems.
1. I only want an xml sitemap, so I deselected all the other choices and saved this (changing the permissions on the config.php file back to 666 so I could amend these), but it is still producing text, html and ror sitemaps. (Are ROR and text sitemaps recommended?)
2. I am getting a notification email, but when I click on the link to view any of the sitemaps it comes up via google as a broken link and the sitemap and ror.xml files that I created as per the instructions are still empty (these are in the generator folder and not the data folder). I have tried to view through [external links are visible to admins only] too but still get broken links.
In my configuration I have an error which is:
Sitemap file is not writable: /var/www/vhosts/postapresent.co.uk/httpdocs/generator/sitemap.xml.gz
(I don't understand what the var/www/vhosts is all about). This is what defaulted in the Save sitemap box.
However, I tried to change it to the path I think it should be which is [external links are visible to admins only] and that came up as 'not writable' too and I have tried various options but no joy.
My starting url is: [external links are visible to admins only]
My Sitemap url is: [external links are visible to admins only]
I have probably configured it wrong somewhere but cannot see what I've done, so any help would be appreciated. (I do have a couple of other little queries, but need to get it working first).
