Hi, I'm trying to add a Sitemap to my iWeb '09 (which is hosted by GoDaddy).  It's asking me to upload the .xml file into my document root folder.  I have no idea how to do this, or how to find the root document in iWeb.  Please, help.

 

Thanks!

    The root folder is the one on the server that contains the folder with your website files and the external index.html file.

     

    The sitemap.xml file should be uploaded using an FTP application. Once you have done this you can test it by entering the URL into the browser to make sure it is in the correct location...

    See this page for more info about sitemaps...

    You need to upload the sitemap with an FTP app or your hosting services file manager.

     

    How are you uploading your website files?

    If you publish to a local folder your website is not published to the server. You have to upload the files with an FTP application after you have published to a local folder!

     

    Do you have an FTP application? If not I would recommend you get Yummy Lite which only costs $1.99 from the App Store...
