Hello manvan,

basically, the Generator installation is the same process as installation of any other web script:
- upload files to the web documents folder
- set file permissions to store data

That's all :)

Hi,

I am not clear on this

3. Then create an empty "sitemap.xml" file in the root public_html folder and set permissions to it as well.

What is an "empty file"? does that mean folder?

Thanks ???

Hello,

please create a new file with name "sitemap.xml" (or "sitemap.xml.gz" if you have enabled gzip compression in Generator Configuration) with any content (or empty, i.e. 0 bytes in size file). And upload it to your host.
This step is required because it is usually not allowed by server configuration for the php script to create this file in your web documents root.

Dear Madam Sir

I just purchased your Software and I hope it will help me in creating the Sitemap o Google.

I am not very good in the technical aspects and feel completely lost.

Will you please tell me in plain English what to do to:

1. Saving the Software on my PC
2. Unzip it
3. What is exactly requested in steps to upload to the Server using FTP to my:
[external links are visible to admins only]

PLEASE use plain English language
4. How to setup the config file and how to setup all other requested files

5. WHAT files to be created to my domain in full details PLEASE.

6. How to start the Crawling process.

I read your forum and get frustrated.

Please guide us in SIMPLE WAY as it seems you are a great professional person that takes things for granted.

I hope to hear from you SOON.

I guess answering this in full detail will help the New Beginner like me and save you lot of late explanation.


Best regards

Hello,

I'll try to provide more detailed explanation for you :)

1. Check the email message sent to you after purchase
2. This email contains the link to download the script
3. Click this link and store the zip compressed file to your PC (to the folder of your choice)
4. Open the saved archive file with archiver software you are usually using (like WinZip) and extract all files and folders from it
5. You should get the following files extracted at your PC after that:
documentation.html
license.html
sitemap.html
config.inc.php
index.php
runcrawl.php
changelog.txt

data/ (empty folder)

pages/style.css
pages/sitemap_tpl.html

and 21 more PHP files in pages/ folder

6. You need FTP software to upload the files to your host (most likely you have one that you use to update your website)
7. Open this software and connect to your host
8. Switch to the remote folder where your documents reside (usually public_html/ folder)
9. Create new subfolder at your host with "generator" title
10. Open the newly created folder
11. Upload all extracted files to the "generator" folder
12. Using the same FTP software, change the permissions:
config.inc.php - 0666
data/ folder - 0777
13. Open the browser and enter the following URL:
http://www.mydomain.com/generator/
14. You will see the configuration page of Sitemap Generator
15. Fill in all options (if you want to change them)
16. Open the http://www.mydomain.com/generator/index.php?op=crawl URL
17. Click "Run generator" button to create sitemap

That's it.

This process is very similar to any other PHP script installation.
Btw, we offer an installation service (for $10 fee) for Sitemap Generator, if the description is confusing for you.

Hi

I thank you very much. It helps a lot to follow the
instructions.

I uploaded the sitemap and so what? When the files
will be indexed?

Best regards

Hi.

Thanks for your great explanation and support. Will you please help in clarifying the following:
 
1. Can I crawl the web several times after eliminating the Broken-links? How often can I run  the Crawling from the Sitemap-Generator?

2. I could not find public_html. However, the server has two types of documents: httpdocs and httpsdocs in the roots. So httpdocs must be the public one? Right?

3. How to submit a SiteMap to MSN and in which format (like Yahoo!s txt or Google)?

Best regards and thanks again.

Hello,

1. Yes, you can (and it's suggested to) re-generate sitemap after you fixed the broken links or your site has been updated (new URLs added).
2. Yes, it's httpdocs folder in your case
3. There is no official information on xml sitemap support for MSN, but it will help to use HTML sitemap created by Sitemap Generator to make indexing easier. Just add the link to html sitemap at some of your pages.

I think that this system is far to advanced for the novice webmaster and this should be made clear before purchasing. It's only a few $'s so most people would just bite the bullet but I'm lodging a complaint to both PayPal and anyone I can get to listem. Very disapointed. ???
