crawling above root dir
« on: November 22, 2011, 02:28:12 PM »

I've made a site using mainly php, and it's the first time I've set a site up with the php files above the root dir, and using only redirection in public_html to get to them (I did it this way, as I read that this offers more protection from hackers in that the code from the php files will never be displayed in the case of as error).

What I'm wondering is do sitemaps work for webpages above the public_html root dir?

sitemap generator has a built-in crawler that accesses your website via http similar to regular visitor, so it should work fine with any kind of backend setup, including having php files out of public_html folder.
