www.mysite.com/generator yields 404 page on my WordPress site
« on: September 07, 2010, 02:02:09 AM »
I just installed the sitemap generator, following the instructions provided.  However, once completed I went to [external links are visible to admins only], and instead of seeing the configuration panel, I'm getting the 404 page of my WordPress site.  Did I do something wrong?

Site: [external links are visible to admins only]
WordPress version 3.0.1
Theme: Headway

thanks,
Mike

Hello,

please try to create a file named .htaccess in generator/ folder with one line:
RewriteEngine off

Well, that does make sense, but I tried it and it didn't work.  Anything else I can try? 

Incidentally, I do have other folders on this site that are served outside of the WordPress loop and are working OK.  Example: [external links are visible to admins only]

I also noticed that a colleague of mine who also has WordPress has the same issue.  If you go to [external links are visible to admins only] you'll see that he also gets the 404 message.  Yet, I know he has xml-sitemaps installed, because you can see it here: [external links are visible to admins only]

So, there must be some work-around for this.  Any idea?

thanks,
Mike

Well, I deleted and re-installed and it's working fine now.

If it helps anyone else, I had zipped the generator folder, uploaded it and extracted it inside my c-panel.  Maybe something when wrong during the zipping or the extraction?  Anyway, I uploaded all the files individually and it's working fine now.

Sorry for the trouble.

thanks,
Mike
