Unable to access sitemap

  • Hi team,

    All I can see when I try to see my sitemap is this warning:

    This page contains the following errors:
    error on line 2 at column 6: XML declaration allowed only at the start of the document
    Below is a rendering of the page up to the first error.

    I shared my site privately – Note that the website is running with a default template.

    Any insights?

    Thank you

  • Hello,

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

    This error suggests that there is some whitespace on your wp-config.php file or your theme’s functions.php file.

    Could you please check if this is the case by opening these files?

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.


    Ok, just missed a blank line at the beginning of the wp-config.php

    Thanks for checking!
