I have a slightly unusual setup which has encountered a problem.
'Your Sitemap URL:' is configured as:
[external links are visible to admins only]
'Save sitemap to:' is configured as:
And I use a htaccess redirect to redirect /es/sitemap.xml to /sitemaps/sitemap-es.xml. The reason I've done this is so I can have a seperate sitemap for each language on my website.
Google seems to be trying to download a file called sitemap-es.xml, which I have never told it about. I can only presume that the script has sent the wrong sitemap URL to Google when sending the ping. It appears that it takes the sitemap filename from the 'Save sitemap to:' setting rather than the 'Sitemap URL' setting. Is this possible?
P.S. I'm using Standalone Sitemap Generator (PHP) v3.0, 2009-05-19.
