put it in a folder named sitemap.  so you it would look like this yoursite.com/sitemap/sitemap.xml This is I set mine up and it works

I try, but didn`t work.Where you put folder in root directory?

edit .htaccess file

it's not necessary to put it in a folder

if you put it in Oxwall root directory,u should add this line to .htaccess file

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/sitemap\.xml

I modify htaccess with this ``RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/sitemap\.xml`` but you must put in before end of htaccess.
