I currently have both the All In One Seo Plugin and the XML Sitemap Plugin installed on my site, would it be best to remove the XML Sitemap Plugin and activate the XML Site Map option in the All In One SEO plugin?
The XML Sitemap feature in All in One SEO Pack does everything that the XML Sitemap plugin does so yes you can switch to using the feature in All in One SEO Pack if you like.
Should I uninstall the XML Sitemap Plugin first?
You should definitely deactivate it first. It’s up to you if you want to delete it.
I’ve deactivated the Google sitemap plugin, renamed the sitemap files and activated the XML sitemap of All in Once SEO.
The All in one SEO XML sitemaps didn’t create the sitemap files.
Why is that?
What I did wrong?
Check your settings; if you have dynamically generate sitemaps checked, then go to Settings -> Permalinks to check your permalink structure and then see if you can view your sitemap. If you don’t have it checked, then click the Update Sitemap button to generate a static sitemap.
I have Dynamically generate checked.
And when I click the view sitemap it shows me this:
But when I look for these files in my root of my blog using FTP or SSH I can’t find the files over there.
How can it be?
That is what the ‘dynamically generated’ checkbox means, it is produced on the fly from WordPress, not served from a file. WordPress can handle the robots.txt file in the same manner as well.
So I can we relaxed that this is working properly and give up on the Google XML sitemap plugin?
Yes; my advice would be to turn off sitemap indexes as well, it doesn’t look like you have enough posts on your blog to require using them.
You will want to uncheck the box for Enable Sitemap Indexes under All in One SEO, XML Sitemap. You only need this checked if your sitemap contains more than 50,000 URLs or is over 10MB in size.
When you have Dynamicall Generate Sitemap checked (the default setting) there are no static files created on the server. The Sitemap is dynamically generated and displayed in a virtual file whenever a robot visits the URL for the sitemap. This avoids the numerous problems with static sitemap files.
I’m running this plugin on several sites and works perfect.
But now on on a certain site after ‘updating site map’ there is no the site map….
http://surfersmap.es/fuerteventura/sitemap.xml >>>>’Nothing found’
Weird, because there is no error message after updating
Is /fuerteventura/ a sub-directory site? Can you try flushing your permalinks and unchecking Dynamically Generate Sitemap (http://semperplugins.com/documentation/xml-sitemaps-module/#dynamicallygeneratesitemap).

‘Failed to write file /sitemap.xml!’

Ok so the first thing to do is to make sure your permalink structure is set to one of the standard permalink structures such as Post name (https://codex.wordpress.org/Settings_Permalinks_Screen). I recommend setting it to Post name if it is not already set to that. This will also flush your permalinks.
Where did you add the /fuerteventura/? Did you add it to the Site Address or the WordPress Address (http://codex.wordpress.org/Settings_General_Screen)? Do the Site Address and the WordPress Address match? If no, what is the URL for each one?
Right now I think it’s the fact that you’ve added /fuerteventura/ to one of those fields that’s messing with the permalink structure. I can tell this because I can’t even get to the URL for the dynamically generated robots.txt that WordPress creates so this proves it’s a WordPress configuration issue and not a problem with All in One SEO Pack.
