    Why don't you look for alternate sitemap generating tools like http://www.xml-sitemaps.com

    http://www.xml-sitemaps.com is a common but effective rule to create a site map for you

    I have tried all sitemap generators out there and I either get 1 url in the sitemap or an error. This problem started when I moved my website from my previous to my new webhost and since I haven't been able to generate a sitemap. Is this webhost related or does anyone know how to get rid of this?

    btw I get this error when I use http://www.xml-sitemaps.com.

    "An error occured

    There was an error while accessing the URL specified: http://www.automobileforum.net/
    Please make sure to specify the correct website URL and resubmit your request."

    Try gsitecrawler.com

    Its a free DL app that will build an XML sitemap for you and upload it to the Google.com/webmastertools section all in one shot.. its no the best looking sitemap output but best of all Google loves it.

    Good luck

    Your site http://www.automobileforum.net redirects to http://www.automobileforum.net/forum

    Try putting your start url as http://www.automobileforum.net/forum/ into xml-sitemaps.com and it should work.

    I have the licensed version of xml-sitemaps.com which creates unlimited sitemap pages. its very good and runs in background for the large sites.

    I ran it on your site and got this error
    An error occured: There was an error while retrieving the URL specified: http(:)//www(.)automobileforum(.)net/forums/
    HTTP headers follow:
    HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found Date: Fri, 01 Aug 2008 14:15:08 GMT Server: Apache/1.3.27 (Unix) PHP/4.3.3 mod_ssl/2.8.12 OpenSSL/0.9.7a Connection: close Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1
    HTTP output:
    
    Not Found
    The requested URL /forums/ was not found on this server.
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Apache/1.3.27 Server at www(.)automobileforum(.)net Port 80
    Code (markup):
    It seems that you have some kind of .htaccess or robots.txt which is not allowing the sitemap to follow the urls.

    Please make sure you do not have any htaccess or robots.txt interrupting the sitemap generator.

    Thanks
    Ali

    I had no problems scanning your website with A1 Sitemap Generator version 1.7.3

    As Hubel also points out, http://www.automobileforum.net redirects to http://www.automobileforum.net/forum/ (However, this does not really matter for A1SG since it autodetects the root redirects and automatically adapts.)

    I have uploaded the generated XML sitemap for your site here:
    http://www.micro-sys.dk/support/sitemaps/automobileforum-sitemap.xml
    (I just used default settings scan and XML sitemap creation)

    I've generated the first 100 links from your site with my sitemap. It worked:

    You can try other sitemap generator tool or if you have a very big site you can try the paid sitemap generator tool.
