I used the standalone sitemap generator 2.xx and two days ago I updated to 4.0.
Everything works fine except the cronjob, although I did't changed the crontab settings.
I use crontab with Plesk 9.3.0 on a Debian 5.0 root server
With sitemap generator 2.xx I used these settings and it worked perfect:
wget -O /dev/null '[external links are visible to admins only]'
Now, after the update to 4.0, the cronjob still starts, but the sitmap.xml can't be written by the runcrawl.php.
When I do am manuel crawl everything works and the data is written by the generator, so it can't be problem with wrong chmod settings.
I also tried these suggested settings from the generator interface:
As the php.ini on my Debian machine isn't on this path, I had to changed the command to:
... but this also didn't work. I'm not sure but I guess it probably could be a problem about the missing username and password, which I don't know how to implement in the command?
Independent from that, I don't understand, why the settings I used with sitemap generator v. 2.xx don't work with v. 4.0.
I hope someone can help.
If needed, I can also post the error messages, but as they are in german language, I might have problems to translate them into english. ;-)
