    Hello guys..

    I just upgraded my site to the latest XF1.4 and after everything i tested the site with the "File Health Check" tool and it returns "potential problems... sitemap.php not found"

    What do i need to do to fix this?

    Upload the files again.

    Thanks, i uploaded the files again but the sitemap.php file could not be uploaded. I kept getting "could not start transfer". It says 553 Can't open that file: Permission denied. How else can i upload that file? Thanks

    Try using a different FTP application - I recommend WinSCP.

    Otherwise, if you have cPanel, you can upload it via that.

    I would also recommend downloading a new upgrade .zip from your customer area and extracting the file from there as your current version may be corrupt.

    Yes i used filezilla and its the current version but all files are uploaded except the sitemap.php file. Every time i get 553 Can't open that file: Permission denied". Let me try WinSCP then. Thanks

    Rename sitemap.php on your site to site_map.php
    Upload now the fresh sitemap.php from your computer.
    Can you do it?

    It should be there.
    Is it in the "upload" folder in your computer?

    If it is not in the upload folder in your computer than it cannot be on your site.

    Not sitemap only a dummy file called sitemap.php (To delete it or overwrite it with the real one)
    In Filezilla use "Create new file"
