There was an error while retrieving the URL specified
« on: October 02, 2012, 11:57:26 AM »
Hello, since i moved my website to a new dedicated server, xml sitemap generator stop working, now i always get the follow message when start crawlling my website:

There was an error while retrieving the URL specified: [external links are visible to admins only]
HTTP Code:
HTTP/1.1 403 Forbidden
HTTP headers:
server: nginx
date: Tue, 02 Oct 2012 11:51:30 GMT
content-type: text/html
content-length: 132
connection: close
set-cookie: d4dad6935f632ac35975e3001dc7bbe8=evgd6kq48ehnfl31uc6a5sprg2; path=/
p3p: CP="NOI ADM DEV PSAi COM NAV OUR OTRo STP IND DEM"
x-powered-by: PleskLin
ms-author-via: DAV
vary

I believe this is a server restriction, but since my server is not managed i was hoping someone could point me for a resolution of this problem.

I checked the htaccess and i dont have any restriction there, my website is running joomla and deactived the pluginsthat might be causing this problem like the firewall of joomla, i also disabled the sever firewall and the problem still remains.

Any help are very welcome

Sincerely
Daniel Q.

Hello,

do you have .htaccess file in your domain root folder? It might block requests from generator.

RewriteCond %{HTTPS} ^on$

Is there anything wrong with my htaccess?

.htaccess looks ok. Please check that you don't have any IPs blocked in Joomla (for instance you might have "flood block" option enabled).
