Sitemaps 404

  • Hello. I’m using the sitemap feature of RankMath and I have the following problem – the main sitemap is working (sitemap_index.xml), but the internal ones are not (page-sitemap.xml and post-sitemap.xml).
    The problem is that I get a 404 page every time I open the internal sitemaps. I tried flushing the permalinks (Settings->Permalings -> Save options) and then saving the sitemap settings again, but nothing has changed.
    I thought the issue might be a conflict with my caching plugin, and I tried troubleshooting mode via Site Health plugin. But even with only 1 plugin activated (Rank Math), the internal sitemaps are still returning 404 page.

    In the “Sensitive Data” field, I have shared the website URL + login info in case you need it
    Thank you in advance for your help :))

  • Hello,

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

    Your sitemaps are working as expected for me when I visit the sitemap index. Here is a screenshot of the page sitemap:

    It is likely that this was a result of caching on your end. Please check again and let us know how this goes.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    Best regards and thank you for the awesome plugin & support!
