200k+ Urls in Ecommerce Site -Help!
« on: February 02, 2011, 07:31:06 PM »
 I have an ecommerce site with around 200k URLs (dynamic).  I have not been able to get past the 50k per sitmap limit.
1.  What happens when I exceed the 50k URLs per file limit?
2.  Does it create a new sitemap file for me? Example - sitemap2.xml
    -If not, do I have to precreate these files so when it hits the 50k per xml file limit, it automatically goes to the new file?
3.  I have only gone 4 levels deep in the URL structure.  5 will pass the 50k mark, I want to be able to do up to 6, maybe 7.  What do you suggest?

Any help is appreciated! Thanks in advance
Thank you for your time.  I have checked the forums and cannot find answers to the above questions.  Please help!

generator splits sitemap on multiple files when more URLs are found, in this case sitemap.xml becomes an index files, containing links to other sitemaps, and sitemap1.xml, sitemap2.xml etc are created.
You will need to manually create those sitemap files (empty, same as main sitemap.xml) and set 0666 permissions for them so that generator has access to write to them.
