Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am having problems with Google webmaster tools and sitemaps with my domain.

When setting the sitemap all I get from webmaster tool still is -->Sitemap is HTML ... and I think I found out the reason:

I registered on google webmaster tools my site as http://mydomain.com but the app is hosted on appspot at http://myapp.appspot.com which is mapped to mydomain.com.

If I register http://myapp.appspot.com everything works fine (sitemap validated) - so it looks the problem is somehow related to the fact that http://myapp.appspot.com is mapped to http://mydomain.com.

This it's not ideal because I need a sitemap for mydomain.com ... any idea about how to overcome?

I think this is not a server related question, quite OT. –  AlberT Aug 11 '09 at 14:20

Check to make sure the links in your sitemap are pointing to mydomain.com not myapp.appspot.com.
