XML Sitemap Not Parsing
I've set up an XML sitemap using this navigation template (replacing example URL with my own):
<perch:before><?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <urlset xmlns="https://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9"> </perch:before> <url> <loc>https://example.com<perch:pages id="pagePath" /></loc> </url> <perch:after> </urlset> </perch:after>
And a file in the root of the website called 'sitemap.xml' which contains this (my Perch directory is the default '/perch'):
<?php header('Content-type: application/xml'); include('perch/runtime.php'); perch_pages_navigation(array( 'template' => 'sitemap.html', 'flat' => true, 'hide-extensions' => true )); ?>
I've then added this line to my .htaccess file to parse the XML as PHP:
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .htm .html .xml
Now, I can't view the XML file (it just downloads a copy when I browse to the file) and the Google Sitemap test is throwing this error: "Your Sitemap appears to be an HTML page. Please use a supported sitemap format instead."
Perch doesn't appear to be doing anything to the file - is this pointing to a problem in my .htaccess file?
My hosting is with Media Temple which uses the same MIME Type and as far as I can see, it should be working.
