[resolved] [Plugin: WordPress SEO] No Sitemap being generated after hosting change (3 posts)

    Recently I took Joosts recommendation for hosting providers and switched from a poor IIS server to a Linux server through VPS.net

    Since doing so I have had real trouble with the sitemap functionality.

    the URL structure on the previous server was not desirable and had the /index.php/ in the permalink now on the Linux server this is now gone forever - very glad. But since this change over the sitemap no longer works.

    When I click to rebuild a sitemap the normal dialog comes up:

    04:57:34: Starting to generate output.
    04:57:36: 455 posts of type post found.
    04:57:36: 74 posts of type page found.
    04:57:36: 101 taxonomy entries of type category found.
    04:57:36: Sitemap successfully (re-)generated with 631 URLs.
    04:57:36: Sitemap successfully gzipped.
    04:57:37: Successfully notified of updated sitemap: Google Yahoo! Bing Ask.com

    1,250KB of memory used.

    Although the only thing askew here is the memory used, this used to be about a quarter of that amount of memory if I ever rebuilt the sitemap previously.

    The links generated are blank and even checking that pages source code have nothing in them.

    I have read that the sitemap is actually located in the /wp-content/uploads/wpseo/ folder but when I check this there is nothing in there. So I deleted the folder and recreated and set the permissions to 777, still nothing is being created.

    I am unsure where to start in fixing this problem and hope someone has some suggestions.

    I believe I have found the culprit. Because we were originally hosted on an IIS server the media library or uploads folder was incorrect. Removed the specific folder it was pointing to and letting WordPress use it's default storage location seems to have amended the problem. I still can't see a sitemap file in the wpseo folder but when I re-build one the links now seem to work.
