[resolved] [Problem] AIO Sitemap Module Creates Sitemap.xml_.gz File (32 posts)

    ^^ Yeah. I understand, that was very strange but I did nothing except activating XML Sitemap module and it threw 500 Internal server error on the whole site.

    Now I have successfully re-enabled XML Sitemap module and its working fine.

    Now its creating sitemap.xml.gz file without any problem.

    PS: I want to know if I disable "Dynamically Generate Sitemap" option, will your plugin automatically update sitemal.xml and .gz files whenever I change something on my website such as updating old article or posting new article? Or will I have to manually update sitemap?

    No, with the static sitemap, it won't automatically update them; because it has to scan through all your posts to create the sitemap, and because it involves file operations, which could potentially require FTP credentials etc. depending on your site's configuration, this is an interactive process, so currently you do have to push a button for it. With the dynamic sitemap, although pushing that button isn't necessary to update your sitemap, you can still do it to notify search engines that you've posted new content (if you have those options checked to do so). However, once they know about your sitemap, they should periodically crawl your site, regardless.
