Sitemap white page

  • My sitemap has become a white page. I have updated it to the latest version. Before I had no issues at all.

    I have an NGINX server, but again before the update I could just humanly read the sitemap.

    Now I have to press control+u and I can see that there is code in the sitemap, and for the last 3 days Google Search Console it updated reading my sitemap. But it’s still the old one.

    Question: How can I get the sitemap human-readable again?

  • Hello,

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

    This can be caused by the presence of a static file with the same name as you sitemap file (sitemap_index.xml). Please FTP into your server and remove the file Let us know how it goes.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.


    No it was not there,

    as said before “Before I had no issues at all.”

    This wasn’t because suddenly a static file was there, because it worked before.

    The issue got resolved by updating.
