Generator Stops

Gooday Oleg

The generator was working great but now it takes ages to make an xml file.

It stops and I have to restart it after it reads about 100 pages at 20 a time.

site has just over 3000 pages.

I have done the php test and looked at the server settings.

Netfirms my host says:

The following settings cannot be manipulated via a custom php.ini as they are dictated by the hosting plan that you subscribe to


Any other sugestions please Oleg.

Thanks in advance

Gooday Oleg,

I have changed nothing at all...since you last looked at it for me, for which I thank you.

I left in on overnight hoping it would restart but nothing happened.

The only way I can restart it is to click on Configeration wait a little while , then click Crawling will crawl sometimes 20,60 or 100 then stop again.

Eventually have got the xml file but it is taking forever with this method.

in case your host limits do not allow to create sitemap in one step, it's needed to resume generator until it's done.
You can use Firefox with "Reload page every X minutes" add-on to automatically restart generator.
