I think I messed up! Sitemap link has 404 error!
« on: May 22, 2012, 04:49:31 PM »
I've used XML-sitemaps successfully in the past. But now I have big problems. Here's the history:
I wanted to update my site map so I logged on to Google webmaster tools and deleted my old site map.
Then I created a new site map with XML-sitemaps.com. I could view the code when I hit the link so I uploaded the sitemap to my web host server then went back to Google webmaster and uploaded new sitemap, but Google says, Error! I got a 404 Error, page not found. How odd. How can that be?

Any suggestions?

Do  you have .htaccess file in domain root folder? If yes, what is it's content?

No, I don't have a .htaccess file in my domain root folder.

I just tried to re-generate a new site map. After it was complete, I clicked on the link to check it authenticity and still got the 404 Error.

Did you upload the sitemap.xml file that was generated?
