Error: HTTP/1.1 403 Forbidden
« on: November 18, 2014, 03:04:50 AM »
Just installed the "Unlimited Sitemap Generator" but failed on my first run with the following error message:


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:
date: Tue, 18 Nov 2014 03:01:07 GMT
content-type: text/html; charset=UTF-8
transfer-encoding: chunked
connection: keep-alive
set-cookie: __cfduid=d080b70ba1a641edacbd594fddbeed5c61416279667; expires=Wed, 18-Nov-15 03:01:07 GMT; path=/; domain=.xxxx.xxx; HttpOnly
cache-control: max-age=15

This is in fact my the third copy of the generator I purchased, all previous installation were smooth without any problem. pleased kindly assist

Hello,

it looks like your server is blocking requests from own server's IP - as a result sitemap generator is not able to crawl the site.

Hello,

it should work correctly, just make sure that cloudflare doesn't block your server's IP.

thx~

for those who are using Cloudflare too, fyi.
select "CDN Only" for "Performance profile" then the XML generator will run as usual.
