Sitemap Settings: \”Sorry, you are not allowed to access this page\”

  • [Had to duplicated ticket as previous login credentials not available]
    Hi guys.

    Hopefully you can help me with a few issues:

    1 – When I log into wp-admin I see this “Please keep only one Sitemap plugin active, otherwise, you might lose your rankings and traffic. Click here to Deactivate.” – however, click the deactivate option doesn’t achieve anything

    2 – Whenever I try switching on Sitemaps, the option seems to switch back off when I leave the page – weird

    3 – Whenever I try switching on Sitemaps, then click the ‘settings’ link, I receive this:
    “Sorry, you are not allowed to access this page.”

    Hopefully it’s an easy fix, but I can not see the solution 🙁

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    I cannot replicate the errors mentioned on your original post. There is however an error on the sitemap that suggests that there could be some white space on your wp-config.php file:

    This page contains the following errors:
    error on line 2 at column 6: XML declaration allowed only at the start of the document

    Please check for white spaces and delete them to fix this.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    Lovely, so it was the wp-config file at fault with the <?php tag starting on line 2, not line 1.

    Let’s hope that resolves things. Thanks
