I'm creating my first website using WP and read that the Google XML Sitemaps plugin is a must-have. In the directions for installation, there is this:
'Use your favorite FTP program to create two files in your WordPress directory (that's where the wp-config.php is) named sitemap.xml and sitemap.xml.gz and make them writable via CHMOD 666.'
The problem is, I'm not sure how to make those xml files. I'm using FileZilla and there doesn't seem to be a way to create files. Is it simply a matter of finding another FTP program that does, or am I missing something completely?
