Google's webmaster tools won't accept the xml file.

This discussion is related to the Sitemaps addon.

Hi there. Great plugin. I have a problem with webmaster tools at google. I cant upload the sitemap it says:

We encountered an error while trying to access your Sitemap. Please ensure your Sitemap follows our guidelines and can be accessed at the location you provided and then resubmit.

Is there a trick to fix it?


  • Can you access the sitemap yourself in a browser?

  • yes i can.

  • Just installed that plugin, sitemap looks normal when accessed in a browser, can't test in Google's Webmaster Center right now though.

  • Its everything normal. I can see it. But google wont accept it. Am trying with days.
