Generate Sitemap File

Permalink
Hi Everyone
New to all of this. I have created my site & want to generate a sitemap. I'm in the Maintenance are of Concrete5 & have clicked "Run Checked" jobs.

1) Index Search Engine (Ticked) - This worked
2) Generate Sitemap File (I get an error) that says "The file /home/rlsystem/public_html/sitemap.xml is not writable"

What am I doing wrong & how do I fix?

Thanks Heaps!
Rene'

go ahead and make an empty file in your root web directory called sitemap.xml, and chmod it to 777

then concrete5 can write to it.

Thanks! That has worked, but now i can't get back to my "Home" link on the menu in concrete5.
IE says there is a neror on the page.
"document.body" is null or not an object
jquery;js
'h' is null or not an object
tiny_mce.js
Code:0
URL:http://www.rlsystems.co.nz/concrete/js/tiny_mce/tiny_mce,js

Sorry how do I get/fix this?

Hi Frz
if you goto

http://www.rlsystems.co.nz

it won't let you goto the "home" link on the menu, it takes you straight to "services" & when i click on the "home" the above error comes up in the browser?
I also can access the "home" link on the menu in C5 - to fix

It seems to be in IE8 only?
IE7 works & Chrome, just IE8 won't let me goto that page

I know I'm necro'ing this post, but I thought it would be worth adding that instead of using chmod 777, you can also use chown to change the ownership of the file to your web services user. In my case on a Red Hat Linux server, using the following command solve the issue:

chmod daemon sitemap.xml


Depending on what version/distro of linux/windows server/etc you have, the name of the web services user may be different (i.e. 'apache' instead of 'daemon').
