I am having an issue similar to others here.  I submitted my sitemap to Search Console and received an error saying: “Your Sitemap appears to be an HTML page. Please use a supported sitemap format instead.”  I don’t see any mention of html on my actual sitemap index, but please advise.

 

Also, is the step of manually submitting to Search Console necessary if the plug-in auto-updates anyway?  

My url is https://www.keepinspiring.me/ and my sitemap url is https://www.keepinspiring.me/sitemap.xml

Thanks in advance and please let me know if I need to provide anything else.

I had already followed all of those steps and generated a sitemap as shown in the third step.  However, mine has 10 items (screenshot attached), rather than 4.  Could I have included a few things I shouldn’t have that might be interfering with things?  I left all the default boxes checked but if I should uncheck a few please let me know.Screen-Shot-2019-10-03-at-10.07.51-AM.pngImage Enlarger 

Having said that, my server is indeed nginx so I have passed that info along to my host to see what they can do.  Thanks.

Michael, 

I hadn;t heard back from my host yet, but it looks like this was a success anyway.  Thank you for your help with this!
