I'm trying to understand how to configure where to save the sitemap files. I don't seem to understand the correct way to specify the paths. I limited my test to 20 pages in order to have the crawling finish quickly and it does finish and shows me under the View Sitemap tab what appears to be a correct sitemap.xml file.  That is the contents appear correct.

However, when I try to find this file and view it via FTP I cannot find it on my site.  Also, when I try to view all the other sitemap files like ror, text, and html I get various errors that appear they are not found.

I've tried many different variations on specifying paths.  For instance, [external links are visible to admins only] and it doesn't work.  Indeed there is a sitemap.xml file there but it is the empty one I originally put there.

Any assistance is appreciated

i resolved this by only using the default paths. I'm still unable to save to any other path I prefer.

The path should be specified as the server directory and file, like:
/path/to/domainroot/sitemap.xml

(NOT as the URL)

Actually, I found success by using opposing slash \path\to\domainroot/sitemap.xml
