Having trouble generating sitemap.xml - 404 error

Hi there,

I’m having trouble generating the sitemap.xml file.

I have created the directory where I need it saving and have made that directory writable.

I go to Catalog > Google Sitemap and add a sitemap there and this says it’s successful, however when you navigation in the browser to the sitemap I get a 404 error - no sitemap.xml file has been generated.

I am using Magento 1.7.0.2 - this is the first time I have used this version, had no issues with this in previous versions - has anyone else come across this?

Many thanks

I have the same problem too.

Same problem here! Sitemap was working well on 1.4 version I upgraded to 1.7 recently...why would I check if my sitemap is visable for google and other search engines after just an magento upgrade?!

Well that was a mistake :(

I noticed few days ago that google can’t even find my sitemap. The most fumiest thing is that sitemap gets generated everyday, same time (cron) and sitemap is exactly were its supposed to be. But if I browse through any browser and use the same path for the URL it gives 404 error. Browser = Google :( :( :(

Does anybody know anything about this? htaccess??
