    Changing permit vis ftp client it won't work
    Then change it via cpanel file manager.
    And it's work - 777 now

      Error:You did not enter a valid value for this setting.



      The above value is showing under the heading:

      Sitemap File Path

      I put the complete link to the folder as u stated above

      what did i do wrong//

      Is it possible that my server doesnt allow it?
      Hi, for example , create a folder named " sitemap test".
      then the Sitemap File Path should be : ./sitemap test (Note: the dot before slash)

        Sorry for disturbing you.

        I have already created folder called 'sitemap' and having index file there i.e. www.mysite.com/sitemap.index.php

        Here please guide me what path should I give ./sitemap or ./sitemap/index.php
        or
        As suggested I should create new folder called sitemaps?

        Thanx in advance.

        G!

        Try these:

        If your forum URL is: http://www.yoursite.com/forum -> Create a folder called 'sitemaps' under in the 'forum' folder and then set the path as ./forum/sitemaps
        If your forum URL is: http://www.yoursite.com -> create a folder called 'sitemaps' the root of your websiote and then set the path as ./sitemaps

        Make sure that the folder 'sitemaps' is CHMOD 777

        That's my best guess... let me know how it works out.

          When I do the "Rebuild Sitemap" I get this error.

          Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 16777216 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 6125396 bytes)

          Any ideas on what could be causing that? I have the settings configured like ENF has said and the directory is 777 (mysite.com/sitemaps).

            After trial and error, me being a freaking newbie and all, I recalled that one time debugging another problem, that creating a directory isn't enough...

            so after I created a directory called sitemap at my root, I then created a file called sitemap.xml using notepad ++, and uploaded it to the directory (after I changed the mod to 777).

            Then the correct entry into the filepath box is...........


            ./sitemap

            Finally, it works!

              Just pointed out to me that the file I created, sitemap.xml is just a dummy file that isn't used for or by anything. It was just a placeholder to populate the directory. I would imagine that pretty much any file named anything would work, and that the sitemap generator creates three files called

                    Hi, does you mean in Google Webmaster? If do,

                    you just submit this URL : http://www.domain.com/xmlsitemap.php

                    The sitemap will be accessed by search engines via that URL.

                            Could you elaborate that please a bit cause Iam not quite shure what do you mean by that?

                            I submited my sitemap as this http://www.mysite/forums/xmlsitemap.php on google and its working
                            As my forums are installed within "forums" file there I created "sitemap" file which is chmoded 777
                            Than AdminCP>>>Settings>>>Options>>>XMLsitemap>>>Sitemap File Path here I inputed "./sitemap

                            This is working for me and if I am wrong please correct me

                            Hope my small explanation will help to someone as I was lost for few hrs with these settings


                            Thank you

                            Ps
                            Yesterday I was thinking that I saw under "Maintenance" (very bottom) options for XML sitemap, but now in AdminCP its just not there(maybe my wife throw something in my soup)
                            How about you guys, only options for this feature is in AdminCP>>>Settings>>>Options>>>XMLsitemap ???

                              If it is working, leave it alone. You can do it either way using the . or the full path. Using the fullstop simply gives the directive to follow from this point.
