Sitemap files with no URLs
« on: August 07, 2011, 08:38:00 AM »
Hi,

My standalone xml-sitemaps is installed at [external links are visible to admins only]

The link for the generator is [external links are visible to admins only]

I had to put a .htaccess file in the httpdocs folder which has the following so that the folder could be accessed:
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/generator

When I create the sitemap I get a sitemap file which clearly sees that I have 629 urls but it prints the sitemap files without the URLS. See below for an example

Total URLs in this sitemap file: 629
   URL   Last Modified   Change Frequency   Priority
1      2011-08-07T00:52:50+00:00   daily   1.0000
2      2011-08-07T00:52:50+00:00   daily   1.0000

Would you be kind enough to advise where I go from here I have spent a lot of time on the forum looking for anyone else with a similar problem and could not find anything and I cant figure it out all I can think of is that it has something to do with the .htaccess file in the root directory which is required for the site to run.

Here is a copy of the contents of the .htaccess which is in the httpdocs folder above the generator folder if that helps?

<Files .htaccess>
order allow,deny
deny from all

<IfModule mod_actions.c>

                                RewriteRule ([^\?]*) cgi-bin/bondi [E=PATH_TRANSLATED:%{DOCUMENT_ROOT}/index.esp]   
                                </IfModule>
                </IfModule>

                <IfModule mod_fcgid.c>
                RewriteEngine On
                RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/sitemap\.xml

                RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/sitemap_video\.xml
                RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/favicon\.ico
                RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/google[^b]
                RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/formmail
                RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !\.php$
                RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/generator
                RewriteRule . index.esp
                </IfModule>
</IfModule>

Where should I go from here?

Hi Oleg,

If you look at the file [external links are visible to admins only]

If shows:

XML Sitemap

 URL Last Modified Change Frequency Priority
1  2011-08-07T09:00:58+00:00 daily 1.0000

Hello,

that sitemap file doesn't seem to be produce by our sitemap generator. Perhaps it's overwritten by some other generator or website add-on that you have installed?

Please try to run generator without "use temporary files to store crawling progress " setting.

That fixed it!

Thank you Oleg!

Any idea why? Should I change something to get it working without switching that feature off?

That might happen in case if incorrect page info is stored depending on server configuration. It's definitely not needed in your case though, sitemap generator will work even faster without that option.
