Host this on your own server
« on: October 12, 2010, 11:01:35 AM »
So that I have complete control of the script and load on the server I was wondering if its better to host this on my own LAMP server since I run quite a large site and probably have about 9 - 10k pages to generate? This means I could max the php settings?

Secondly it will only effect my own bandwidth with my ISP and not my bandwidth on my host is that correct?

If I am grabbing a site map from an external site not on the same server, what sort of load does this put on the external site?

By the way this is a brilliant script, well done.

it is possible to install generator on local machine to create sitemap for your website.
In this case CPU/memory usage of sitemap generator will not affect the server. However, generator uses a "crawler" that visits your site pages, follows all found links etc, i.e. it will use website bandwidth for that.
