Why would I need to have an empty sitemap.xml file in the domain root? From what I can tell, the program doesn't ever ask for where my domain root is.
For reference, I do not have the generator putting the sitemap in my domain root automatically. I am choosing to generate it somewhere else (in the /data folder) and then move it into place with another script. I *do* have a sitemap.xml in the domain root, it's has 666 permissions, and the owner is "apache" (which is the same owner/group that PHP runs as). But I've moved that into place on my own.
It seems so weird that the process actually FINISHES, creates the sitemaps, but then still reports an error.
Is there anything else that could be causing these kind of permission problems?
