Couldn’t Fetch Error for Site Map

  • Hello,

    I’m getting an error in Google Search console for my Site Map. It says “Couldn’t Fetch.”
    I’ve read your troubleshooting posts to resolve this issue and still can’t fix it.

    I checked my site map (XML) in Validate XML Sitemap and the error I’m getting is “Incorrect http header content-type: “text/html; charset=UTF-8” (expected: “application/xml”).

    I checked my site health in Tools > Site Health and it reports Good. Only issue is deleting inactive plugins.
    As suggested, I went into Settings > Permalinks and saved again. Problem not yet solved.

    What can I do to fix the problem? Please help.

  • I fixed the problem by adding the site map URL as an exception to my cache plugin settings.
