ownership nobody, can't change file permissions
« on: March 18, 2010, 01:17:42 PM »
I'm getting the "Sitemap file is not writable: /usr/www/users/me/mysite/sitemap.xml" error trying to save my configuration.

Logging in through ssh and going into /data, trying to chmod generator.conf to 666, I'm seeing that the file is owned by 'nobody'.  Since I'm on a shared server, I can't sudo to root and change the ownership.

Is there any other way to accomplish this without calling support for my server and getting them to change ownership?  Thanks.

Hello,

you should create empty sitemap.xml file in domain root and set 0666 permissions to it.

argghhh.  My mistake, I uploaded them to the generator directory instead of the root.  Working fine now.  Thanks.
