Different types of sitemaps
« on: October 03, 2014, 03:14:21 PM »
Hello,

We used your sitemap service a couple years ago, and we just purchased the unlimited sitemap generator. It looks like we have five separate sitemap files that was generated by your tool including:

   sitemap-blog.xml
   sitemap-bonds.xml
   sitemap-image.xml
   sitemap-main.xml
   sitemap.xml

Just to ensure we don't encounter headaches, will the current version of your generator create the sitemaps for all of these?

Also,

We realize they haven't been updated since 2013, even though they're set to update daily. Do you think uploading the newest version of the generator would fix this problem?

Hello,

sitemap generator creates only these:
sitemap.xml
sitemap_images.xml (in case if Images addon is included)
sitemap_video.xml (with Video addon)
sitemap_news.xml (with News addon)

Other listed files are not create by generator script.
In order to automatically update sitemap you should setup a scheduled task in your hosting control panel to run it.

Thanks for the info. So the chron job command line that is provided will automatically update sitemap.xml & sitemap_images.xml correct?

We currently have our image sitemap named named with a underscore rather than a dash. I'm guessing we will either need to change the name of the sitemap, or update the chon job command line?

Also, we encountered errors when running the chron job such as:

PHP Warning:  fopen(/var/www/vhosts/jwsuretybonds.com/sitemap/data//var/www/vhosts/jwsuretybonds.com/sitemap-image2406.xml): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /var/www/vhosts/jwsuretybonds.com/sitemap/pages/class.utils.inc.php on line 102'

This is making it so the sitemaps don't update at all. Do you know what's causing this?

1. yes, all sitemaps are created.

2. images sitemap filename is defined in generator configuration ("Images Sitemap filename:" setting)

3. make sure that data/ folder has 777 permissions and "Images Sitemap filename:" includes only filename without path.
