    Hi, my versione of wordpress is 3.2.8
    I have recently made a mess: i had a plugin on website and that, for error I have deleted a file "sitemap.xml" and substituied it with another generated from an online tool found on the web.
    I realised it did not work and than i have deleted a plugin from my website, reinstalled it with both two files files "sitemap.xml" and "sitemap.xml.gz" + i made them writable. I also made the whole root file writable with 777.
    But i continue to have an error saying that these two files files "sitemap.xml" and or "sitemap.xml.gz" are inexistent or not writable.
    I don't know what to do?

    Please, help

    There is no WordPress version 3.2.8

    try this

    delete the two files.

    issue the following commands:

    touch sitemap.xml
    touch sitemap.xml.gz
    chmod 777 sitemap.xml
    chmod 777 sitemap.xml.gz

    Now try to re-generate your sitemap. Hope it will work. Otherwise, you need to check with your host provider.

    BTW, he/she did mean Google XML Sitemaps 3.2.8.

    Hi, actually i did that. I have restarted everything. The fact is that the plugin seems working fine, I even updated on google webmaster website and it turned ok. It's just that when I click on http://www.mywebsite.com/sitemap.xsl i get this error:
    or - goes back to the homepage of my website
    or- says Nothing found

    now, when i write
    http://www.mywebsite.com/sitemap.hml it says error (805303f4)

    I would be ok with it it's just it's been more than a month that I have installed the plugin and still cannot see anything on google.

    Do you guys think it's normal?

    Yes, sorry, i thought of a version of a plugin not wordpress
