Hello,

in case if html sitemap is empty, perhaps some files are corrupted, please try to reupload all generator files.

Tried an experiment and had the generator write the files to the generator/data directory and they are ok there. Problem is when I try to write them to the site root. The files are written, they are just blank (2kb big). Style is being applied.

Just started happening and not sure what happened to cause it.

Updated to the latest generator v7.2, 2017-03-14
Updated PHP files to 7.1.9

Reran the generator (takes a full 24 hrs) Now all sitemaps are empty except ROR and txt
All xml files = 2kb and blank
All htm files 2kb and empty
ROR file ok
url txt file ok

Ideas?

Are links in script to the stylesheets being made relative or full?

This is a Windows IIS 7.5 (2008 R2) Server

Thanks,
Jay

Hello,

Since your site is hosted on windows platform, in order to complete installation you should also set file permissions accordingly (allow write access to sitemap.xml, ror.xml files and data/ folder). On windows servers this is done in hosting control panel or via remote desktop access (instead of FTP).

Cut and paste...cut and paste....

This is the same reply you send EVERYONE on your forums with a windows server, obviously you don't get them...Would be much improved if you actually cut and paste a more useful response.

I have complete Administrator access to my server and have set up the correct access for your script and PHP.  (not through FTP but using remote desktop). There are many possible security concerns here I don't even want to start.

OK.

1. Using the latest version of your software.
2. Using the latest version of the Windows PHP build

The software does not error on write permissions.
The software is once again writing the .xml sitemaps to the root of the iis server without issue.
The software writes the ror.xml file OK
The software writes the urllist.txt file OK

The software cannot write the .htm sitemap with data anywhere...it writes empty 2kb files with only the styles in them. I have tried saving them in the data folder, generator root folder and the site root and they always write the same way - empty, only 2k big with just the styles.

PHP error log reports:
PHP warning: Unable to load dynamic library php_mysql.dll (many failures)
permission denied in generator/pages/class.utils.inc.php on line 102 (permissions are correct)

Let's see if we can't solve this. the table of contents pages aren't that critical but irregardless should function.

THX, jay

Hello,

1. this error message is related to PHP configuration on server side, but it won't affect generator since it's not using mysql:
> PHP warning: Unable to load dynamic library php_mysql.dll (many failures)


2.
> permission denied in generator/pages/class.utils.inc.php on line 102 (permissions are correct)

In this case you also need to allow write access for IUSR_* to table-of-contents.htm file and all further files (table-of-contents1.htm, table-of-contents2.htm etc since there are 1,000 links per html file by default) which should be manually created.

Allowed write every way possible, still won't write html. (also as a note, won't write .xml files to the /data directory either)

What is the latest PHP version supported by version 7.0 of the crawler?

I was glad to get off PHP 5.6 because of the security flaws, but crawler 7.0 won't run on PHP 7.1.9

Any help is appreciated

WTF?

Clicked the box to make a delay between requests - set it to 1s after 1000 requests and now it writes the html maps....

Nothing to do with any extraordinary permissions.

What did this do to fix the write problem?

Hello,

that setting is not related to writing html sitemap, something else must have been changed in the meantime.
