every now and then, the google crawler is getting a 404 response on the
/sitemap_index.xmllink. It’s the only link, getting a 404. At the same time
/sitemap-pt-****-2016-06.xmlis accessible. Whenever I click on
/sitemap_index.xmlthe url is working just fine. Goin’ to settings/permalinks saving again doesn’t seem to get rid of this error. It’s the only URL throwing a 404 error. Since it’s a the sitemap URL it’s an important URL.
Please have a look at this issue.
