We’ve been using the XML sitemap generator software successfully for a while, but recently had to move to a different physical server.
Generally, the move went smoothly but since then, the sitemap software doesn’t crawl the site properly. The settings are identical, except for specifying the new server IP address. There are a few thousand pages on our site, many of which are essentially wordpress posts and Zencart product pages. This did work until the move.
What happens now is that when I set it to crawl the site, it stacks up about 85 pages (far too few), and with the debug output on I can see that it is scanning into a few of the site folders and pages, but the sitemap output itself only lists the first page. It says it crawled 123 pages, less than 10% of the site. Additionally, attempting to view the HTML sitemap version produces a page that’s blank except for ’500’ in the upper left corner.
I’ve reinstalled the Generator software on our server closely following the installation directions, including setting the permissions and creating the empty output files. The results are not improved.
The PHP version on the server is 5.2.17. the apache version 2.2.21.
Wondered if you could make any suggestions as to what’s stopped the generation.
