Solution to 404 problem using .htaccess

edited March 2012 in Questions
This discussion is related to the Sitemaps addon.

I was getting the problem where Google Webmaster Tools was reporting the sitemap.index.xml and the linked sitemaps as a 404. I think this is something to do with going through the Vanilla Routing. The fix I found was to add a rewrite rule to the existing .htaccess so it looks like this:

   RewriteBase /
   RewriteRule sitemap.([^\.]+).xml cache/Sitemaps/sitemap.$1.xml
   RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
   RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
   RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php\?p=$1 [QSA,L]

The plugin should then work as advertised. Hope that helps!
