The XML page cannot be displayed - sitemap.xml
« on: July 21, 2009, 10:34:03 AM »
I seem to be having trouble with my sitemap.xml being generated.

Since I got my standalone sitemap generator working I just assumed everything was correctly generated in sitemap.xml. Since I was getting a successful report email.

I logged in to google webmasters today and it says the following.

Quote from: Google
Empty Sitemap
Your Sitemap does not contain any URLs. Please validate and resubmit your Sitemap.

I went and opened my sitemap.xml by browser and got the following message

Quote from: Browser
The XML page cannot be displayed
Cannot view XML input using style sheet. Please correct the error and then click the Refresh button, or try again later.


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

XML document must have a top level element. Error processing resource 'http://www.decalcity.com/sitemap.xml'.
 

So I went and  opened the file in an editor and it is completly empty.

I checked the permissions on it and it is 0666.

Any ideas on what I need to do?

Hello,

you have gzip compression option enabled, so you should submit sitemap.xml.gz instead.
