Error opening socket
« on: August 10, 2012, 12:32:16 PM »
I have started getting the following error when I try to run the unlimited sitemap generator on my site.

There was an error while retrieving the URL specified: [external links are visible to admins only]
Error message: Error opening socket to [external links are visible to admins only]
HTTP headers follow:

HTTP output:

Has been working perfectly fine until this week.

Probably there is a configuration problem - it looks like your server doesn't allow local network connections via port 80 (http) - as a result sitemap generator is not able to crawl the site. This is usually related to firewall installed at the host - could you please contact your hosting support regarding this?

I've contacted them about this. My website monitoring service also has been reporting another problem, 'Host not found'. Hopefully they can get this fixed quickly. Quick question, does the latest version of the generator include image and video sitemap creation?

Thx,
Scott

I purchased all of the add-ins for version 5. Do I need to purchase them again for version 6?

My hosting company would like to know if there any required php parameter values that need to be set (IIS)?

No, they will be included in your downloaded package.

Depending on the size of website it might be needed to increase timeout setting, but you can try with default settings first.
