I use standalone version of XML Sitemap Generator.
My site (Joomla) has a SEF component rewriting links into cyrillic alphabet.
I run the script on my local computer where I have got an Apache web-server installed. Because real site contains over 20 000 pages. I pointed the script to scan my real site in its configuration section. After that I uploaded the generated sitemap to my real site, after changing site URL in it of course.
Now I am facing two problems.
1) There was 1000 broken links, however they look OK and I can open the pages from the list of broken links just clicking on them. What should I do with them?
2) The site map contains links supposed to be in cyrillic looking as abracadabra, and of course they give 404 error when clicking on them.
I am not a big expert with that. Could you please advise where to look for or relevant reading. I will send you in pm my sitemap address so you can take a look.
