app.php/sitemap.xml - File not found

Post by dlugasny » Sat Jul 13, 2019 10:05 am

Hi,

Im using PHPBB 3.2.7 and SEO Sitemap extension to generate sitemap.xml file.
Unfortunately this url returning

https://someforum.com/app.php/sitemap.xml


"File not found"

I`m using NGINX server, do I need to change something in the server configuration ? How to debug it ?

Thanks in advance for any support.


Cheers
Dlugasny

you do have to have the proper config file for nginx to work with phpbb. if you did not do that from the beginning you will have all sorts of strange problems.

Hi Robert ,

may I count on more constructive help ? It is really hard to find a proper virtual host configuration for Phpbb. Where may I find proper configuration for sitemaps ? Is there any documentation for it ?

I know that this topic is old and most probably several times discussed but to be honest I havent found any good tutorial where is good explain constelation NGINX + PHPBB + sitemap.xml . I will appreciate any help.


Cheers

The sitemap extension is supported wholly by the person who wrote it. We can't help you with that.

Is there any standard solution to generate sitemap for PHPbb ?

Not built in. It's not really that necessary. They work better on static pages, which a forum is not. The search engines are clever enough to know what to look for on your site.

Ok, its good to know. In this case I will not waste my time for some extensions.

Sitemap.xml is necesarry from my point of view. If bots are claver enought to decide which is what on my site, I do not know. Till now I have only bad experiences with indexing without sitemaps and microdata. I will write some bash crawler which will generate sitemap.xml for me.

Thanks for Your time and support.

Just the bots group to have access to the forums you want. That's it.
