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 admins 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?
