404 (file not found)

    I get this message while trying to verify my sitemap at google.

    We've detected that your 404 (file not found) error page returns a status of 200 (OK) in the header.
    SEMrush
    The problem is that i already confgured my webserver to show 404.
    Are there anything else that i didn´t think of?
    And i did it several days ago but it still shows this message.
    I have managed to verify one of my other websites without any problem, could the problem have to do with google perhaps.

    The site I´m trying to get verified now is the on i have in my signature it´s in PHP.

    Can I edit myself somehow?

    It does show a 200 OK (good document) for any random page you go to. For example:

    -Monkey:~ shawn$ curl -I http://www.add-url.googlepagerankings.com/blahblahwdf3f
    
    [b]HTTP/1.1 200 OK[/b]

    I'm still showing a 200 OK for any random URL I type... but that's cool... I guess Google doesn't care. :)
