    Hi there,

    We appreciate your cooperation in this matter.

    As I mentioned before, you can temporarily use as your sitemap until we fix the issue with your main sitemap. To do that, we need to access your WordPress site. Could you please send us a username and password to log in to your WordPress dashboard?

    We’re sorry for the inconvenience and we hope to resolve this issue as soon as possible.

    Thank you for choosing Rank Math.


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

    Thank you.

    I update the wp login in the sensitive data. please check and fix the issue

    Hi there,

    We’re happy to update you on the status of your sitemap issue.

    We have checked your WordPress site and we have found the cause of the problem. It was related to your permalink settings. You had added /index.php/ to your permalinks, which made your sitemap generate in the /index.php/ directory instead of the root directory.

    We have fixed this issue by removing /index.php from your permalinks. Now your sitemap is showing in the right location – and your posts don’t have /index.php/ in their URLs anymore. Don’t worry, all your old URLs will redirect automatically to the new ones.

    You can now submit your main sitemap ( to Google and get your site indexed faster.

    We hope this solves your problem and we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

    If you have any other questions or need more assistance, please feel free to contact us again.
