    i had submitted my xml sitemap on google and bing webmaster tool...
    but now for some reason it gives a general HTTP error: 404 not found
    i had uploaded the sitemap.xml file through my ftp application on webserver..
    but now its not there.. can anyone help me to get my sitemap.xml file a new one.. because the old file i dont know might have gotten deleted...
    it seems i cant find it anywhere on webserver...
    or is it there something i missed... what would be the standard procedure to upload the xml file on webserver...
    i'm a newbee... so please dont mind... i'm confused..

    There are free site map generator available use that to create one. Search "site map generator" in google.
    It should be located exactly here domain.com/sitemap.xml if you placed it in different locations then you face these problem.
