  • Same problem!


    Thank you for contacting Rank Math and sorry for any inconvenience that might have been caused due to that.

    Are you using any cache plugin? If yes, could you let us know which one so we can give you specific indications about how to disable caching the sitemaps?

    In any case, you will need to exclude these files:


    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.


    Thank you for the quick reply,
    1. We are using WP Rocket – on Nginx Server
    2. WP Rocket Advanced rules:
    Never Cache URL(s):

    We had this exclude all the time


    3. We also use Redis Object Cache:

    Client:	PhpRedis (v5.2.2)
    Drop-in:	Valid
    Key Prefix:	DOMAINNAME.com_
    Status:	Connected
    Port:	6379
    Database:	0
    Connection Timeout:	1s
    Read Timeout:	1s
    Redis Version:	3.2.6

    We disable both of them and still see the same problem

    Your sitemap seems to be working perfectly fine from my end, please check the screencast I have added in the sensitive section.

    Could you please check your sitemap from a different browser or private/incognito mode.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.


    I’m not sure what happened, we restart the server, and now it shows the correct time.
    I’m closing the ticket but I’m not sure why its happening


    We are super happy that this resolved your issue. The issue of sitemap not updating is usually to do with it being cached either on your site or server. To avoid this we always recommend that sitemap URLs are added to the exclusion list of the cache.

    If you don’t mind me asking, could you please leave us a review (if you haven’t already) on about your overall experience with Rank Math? We appreciate your time and patience.

    If you do have another question in the future, please feel free to create a new forum topic, and it will be our pleasure to assist you again.

    Thank you.
