Sitemap not available when changing location of sitemap folder

  • We are trying to get the sitemmaps’ link not be the site’s home path (we have a cache netwrok that blocks there XML’s.
    So we have added to functions.php this hook:

    function filter_wpseo_sitemaps_base_url( $base ) {
        $base = '/search-sitemaps/';
        return $base;
    add_filter( 'rank_math/sitemap/base_url', 'filter_wpseo_sitemaps_base_url', 10, 1 );

    In admin it shows the updated URL for sitemaps, but the link leads to a 404 page not found.
    I tried clearing cache, updating permalinks, playing with RM settings – nothing helped.
    We also checked site health with plugin to see if other plugin might be the issue.

    Please your help with this.
