Internal Server Error when generating sitemap
« on: July 07, 2013, 07:56:49 PM »
Hi guys,

I have an issue with the standalone sitemap generator - it is producing an internal server error when it is mid generation.

Looks like it is getting about 70% of the way through the scan before it stops like this.

Could someone help me to troubleshoot this issue?

thanks in advance

Dave

update: I has completed, but it produced the same error several times, Im wondering if there is some sort of memory issue?

the sitemap is quite big - 4864 pages. But also the server is quite capable as well - Quad core AMD with 8GB ram.

Any ideas?

Hello,

it looks like your server configuration doesn't allow to run the script long enough to create full sitemap. Please try to increase memory_limit and max_execution_time settings in php configuration at your host (php.ini file) or contact hosting support regarding this.

tried these values and they did not help - checked and they had taken effect - they show up if I spill a php config page.

memory_limit   1024M
max_execution_time   600

However, when I checked the sitemap generation execution time, it said 16 minutes, so Im wondering if the max execution variable still wasnt long enough.

Assuming thats seconds, I have changed it to 20 x 60 (20 minutes) = 1200

And I am just re-running the generator now.

failed again:

Time passed: 0:08:04
 Time left: 0:00:05
 Memory usage: 3,721.9 Kb

Maybe that memory usage is the issue?
