How to create a sitemap and send it to Google

Postby kadenceqwery » Fri Feb 01, 2013 1:58 pm

I have installed the GYM Sitemaps & RSS and I'm trying to understand what I have to do in order to send a valid sitemap to Google via my webmaster tools panel. In my FTP root I see the sitemap.php file and this the file that indicate to webmaster tools for sitemap. Unfortunatately I take the following error from the webmaster tools "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 any way to produce a simple sitemap file in xml format and save it to the root and the submit to Google??
I really I don't understand how thw GYM Sitemaps works??? and I have lost at least 4 hours to read other posts:(
I would appreciate any help on this problem. :)
Thanks

What's your sitemap URL?

PS: In my opinion, the need for sitemaps is minimal. Googlebot can traverse phpBB sites quite efficiently and doesn't need "hints" from a site map.
