    We really look forward to helping you.


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

    Thank you.


    I added the following exceptions to your cache plugin, after that I cleared the cache and now you shouldn’t have the issue anymore, could you check it?


    Looking forward to help you.

    thanks however post, post tags and categories still have errors i cleared cache and restarted still errors


    You have no posts, categories or tags on your site and therefore the related sitemaps lead to 404. This is what is causing the issue. I disabled these sitemaps in Rank math > Sitemap Settings > Posts/Tags/Categories

    You can now resubmit your min sitemap and let us know if there is any issues detected.

    Hope that helps and please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.
