I can’t see sitemap

#278072
  • When I click on the sitemap url from Rank Math plugin, I see a 404 error. I tried changing the permalinks and adding the exclutions on the cache plugin but still not working. What can I do?

  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting the support, and sorry for any inconvenience that might have been caused due to that.

    You have to enable the post or the page sitemaps by going WordPress Dashboard > Rank Math > Sitemap Settings > Posts/Pages. With nothing to show inside, the sitemap_index.xml file is showing a 404 error.

    sitemap include

    Hope this helps you. Looking forward to helping you.

    Thank you.

    I did it but still not working. =S

    Hello,

    We might need to take a closer look at the settings. Please edit the first post on this ticket and include your WordPress & FTP logins in the designated Sensitive Data section.

    Please do take a complete backup of your website before sharing the information with us.
    Sensitive Data Section

    It is completely secure and only our support staff has access to that section. If you want, you can use the below plugin to generate a temporary login URL to your website and share that with us instead:

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/temporary-login-without-password/

    You can use the above plugin in conjunction with the WP Security Audit Log to monitor what changes our staff might make on your website (if any):

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-security-audit-log/

    We really look forward to helping you.

    Hello,

    I have updated the sensitive data as requested. Can you please check further?

    Thank you.

    What should I do? Thanks =)

    Hello,

    I’ve checked your site, and it seems that you have some rewrite rules in your .htaccess file which might be the reason for that issue.

    In this case, please try using a default .htaccess file and check again. Here’s the link for your reference:
    https://wordpress.org/support/article/htaccess/

    Please also check if you have any static sitemap files in your website’s root directory. Rank Math’s sitemaps are generated virtually. If so, please delete them and check if the sitemaps are working fine.

    I hope that helps.

    Thank you.

    Still not working =(

    Hello,

    It seems like you have deactivated the user account that you created for us. Can you please activate it again so we can investigate this further?

    Looking forward to helping you.

    Thanks.

    So sorry. Now you can!

    Hello,

    It seems there is another sitemap that is currently rendered on your website as you can see in the screenshot in the Sensitive Data section.

    Could you please check your website directory or your FTP if there is another physical sitemap file there? Please remove it if you found one.

    If you prefer, we can also check that. Please share your FTP login details so we can further debug this situation.

    Looking forward to helping you.

    Thank you.

    Okay! I updated the Log In details for FTP. Thanks for your help.

    Hello,

    I tried accessing your FTP but I can’t seem to connect to your server. Could you also please share the correct host for your FTP?

    Looking forward to helping you with this one.
