[Plugin: WordPress SEO] Permission denied for sitemap file (3 posts)

    We're getting permission denied errors for the xml sitemap generation with WordPress SEO (great plugin). It's only happening for 1 of the 8 dynamically generated xml files which is stumping us:

    Here's the sitemap index:
    http://www.starkinsider.com/sitemap_index.xml

    And here's the sitemap that gives the permissions error (and blank page):
    http://www.starkinsider.com/post-sitemap4.xml

    Oddly, all the other files work fine! We'd like to resolve this so we can turn off our other xml sitemaps plugin and use WordPress SEO instead and submit to Google.

    Any ideas?

    Not sure if it's the same... but I get a 403 on the /sitemap_index.xml...

    I have no sitemap_index.xml file in the WordPress root folder...

    Ok, for me it turned out to be an .htaccess file further up the tree that blocked .xml files...

    Working fine now :-)
