Hello Mentors,

Pls my XML sitemap no longer rebuild automatically. I have to keep rebuilding it manually. I alwasy see a meesage on top of the Settings-XML Sitemap page that it is resheshing and will be done after about 60 sec. But it never goes.

Also, i see the message below-
There was a problem while notifying Google. View result
There was a problem while notifying Bing. View result


I did a search online, and found this post-
You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Pls has anyone experienced similar issue?

Any idea how to go about resolving this please?

My intention was to go ahead and try this option i copied below from the wordpress link-
Quote
I have an update on this problem on how I solved it.
Go to your dashboard > plugins > deactivate the google sitemap generator.
then
Got to your filemanager or login to your FTP Account and delete the old sitemap.xml and sitemap.xl.gz
then
Upload a new set of blank sitemap.xml and sitemap.xml.gz (read the readme included on this plugin on how to create those two files)
then
Go to your Dashboard > plugins > activate the google sitemap generator
then Go to settings then click XML Sitemap then click the rebuild the sitemap manually
then
wait for it to load and whalla! the problem is gone away!


This is the part i am not sure how to go about it-
Quote
Upload a new set of blank sitemap.xml and sitemap.xml.gz (read the readme included on this plugin on how to create those two files)
I tried looking for the readme file included with the plugin, but found none.
Thanks for your help.
I just clicked on the "rebuild sitemap manually" again now!

If I'm not mistaken, You should be able to use notepad or any plain text editor to create a new set of blank sitemap.xml and sitemap.xml.gz . Do this for each file:

STEPS
Create a blank text document and save it as "sitemap.xml.gz"  (type it together with the quotes). Do same for the other file. See screenshot below:

If they are not there it means they have probably not yet been created by the plugin. You should still go ahead and create the blank ones and upload them. Select overwrite when uploading.

After reading Lesson 6 again, I found the old sitemap.xml and sitemap.xml.gz files in public_html/zalmanar/  and not in the plugin file as I thought. And they were not empty.

should i go ahead and delete them both and upload blank ones as you suggested, and then submit the sitemap to google?

Also The blank ones i just created now and uploaded in the plugins folder, should i leave them there or delete them?

Thanks

Read the instructions again and do whatever you are asked to do.

Delete them because they are of no use there.

Done as suggested. Issue is still there. Apart from this link where i saw this issue raised (which is actually 4 years old) please any other ideas? Any reason why this is happening? Anyone in the house had similar experience?

Thanks!

Try:

1. uninstalling the plugin and delete the plugin files
2.delete both sitemap files
3. Reinstall the plugin and rebuild your sitemap (deactivate Ask.com notification)


If the above fails then you may have no other choice but to try a different plugin.
Do this:
Repeat Steps 1 and 2 above
Install this one: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login    (make sure to read the instructions)

Just finished chat session now with HostGator. Issue resolved. The tech guy disabled all my plugin, and found out that one of them was causing the problem. As soon as he re-enabled them all, i followed your instructions. Deleted Google XML Sitemaps, deleted my sitemap files and re-built them again, and re-activated the plugin. Google & Bing are now successfully notified.

Please, how about other search engines like ask.com, etc. Noticed its only google and bing that is successfully notified.

Not sure what led to all this though, but any suggestion on how to avoid any future occurence pls?

Thanks!

Found out that backupWordPress plugin was the problem. Went to my lesson book - lesson 6, noticed you didn't actually use any particular one, but told us to go to You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login.

Read the post there, and came to the conclusion that i rather request your advice on which one to install, considering all the inconvenienced this has caused.

Thanks for your understanding.

ps: i have unstalled and deleted it, waiting to hear from you - what you will recommend.

Incidentally, we do our backups manually once every three months or before updating the wordpress. If you don't post much, you don't need to do backups often. On the other hand, you could try any of the other plugins mentioned in that post and see if it also conflicts.

To be honest, i think i will also opt for manual backup, because that way, i have my contents with me on my PC and Ext HDD. I approached hostgator, and was told i will need to pay $15 for a restore. Had to retype my page i lost. :(

Effectively, this means i dont need to install any backup plugin, right?

Maybe not at this time. When you have more experience or more time on your hands you can experiment to find a good plugin but if you feel you can continue manually then no problem, you can do without the plugin.
