  • 404 not found on what URL? How does Google report this to you? Please specify some more details.

    Hello

    I went to Google’s webmaster’s tools page.

    I checked via sitemaps if my sitemap was running ok. It came back with:

    /page-sitemap.xml

    Error

    General HTTP error: 404 not found

    Google for some reason can’t find it.

    Have you submitted the index: sitemap_index.xml?
    Is .htaccess enabled for your domain?

    Hi Gerard

    I have resubmitted the sitemap via the Google Webmasters Tool Dashboard.

    .htaccess file is there and working. I typed ‘TEST’ on the first line of the htaccess file and got a 500 error when I tried to load the webpage.

    I have resubmitted the sitemap via the Google Webmasters Tool Dashboard.

    How did that work out?

    Hi Gerard

    Just checked about 5 mins ago and all apperas to working fine.

    The re-submit worked a treat.

    THANK YOU!
