    Im getting this message

    We were unable to crawl your Sitemap because we found a robots.txt file at the root of your site but were unable to download it. Please ensure that it is accessible or remove it completely.

    WTF

    removed the robots.txt - then tryed to 777 it.


    Any ideas

    I had the same problem about 2 weeks ago on a different host and all it was was an error in my .htaccess. Something to have a look at atleast.
