Error Code when attempting to generate sitemap
« on: February 15, 2010, 08:44:53 AM »
My website works fine when accessed through a browser, but when attempting to generate a sitemap, the following error comes back-

An error occured
There was an error while accessing the URL specified: <b>[ External links are visible to forum administrators only ]</b>
Please make sure to specify the correct website URL and resubmit your request.

I have not had a problem generating sitemaps from this website prior to last Friday.

I have noticed other users have had this same question and the reply has always been the server is coming back with a 404 code, however I don't see where it is explained how to fix this.

I have contacted my host and they have no idea what I'm talking about.  Can someone please provide a little more information as to how this can be resolved and why it happened in the first place?

Hi, your site is not returning anything at all from our server. It may be a temporary issue or your hosts could be blocking access to our ip address.
