Compressed Sitemap file is not writable
« on: July 01, 2013, 09:24:44 PM »
Hi,

I am saving my sitemaps to the web root of my domain. The Save sitemap to: field is set to
Code: [Select]
/path_to_site/httpdocs/sitemap_de.xml the file permission is set to read & write (666).


After crawling I get following error:

Code: [Select]
Sitemap file is not writable: /path_to_site/httpdocs/sitemap_de1.xml.gz
Sitemap file is not writable: /path_to_site/httpdocs/sitemap_de2.xml.gz

Both files do not exist.
The Text and HTML Sitemaps were created. The for format also does not exist.

What is worng?

Thanks
Florian

You need to manually create empty sitemap_de1.xml.gz/sitemap_de2.xml.gz files, set 666 permissions to them and create sitemap again.
