I am receiving this error in RankMath ‘mywebsite.com/sitema.pxml’ is not a sitemap index. (see sensitive data for actual url)
Can manually traverse to this location and see a sitemap, but Bing and Search Console both do not like whatever is happening here and flag me with a sitemap error. This will surely impact search-ability.
I tried deleting the original sitemap, flushing the WordPress permalinks, Saving the sitemap settings in RankMath, Reauthorizing Search Console within Rank Math, and still getting this error. Disabled security plugins to see if writing access was being denied but the problem persists through plugin deactivation.
