Error generating Sitemap

Hello, when I try to generate a sitemap at magento 2, it shows me this error:

Please make sure that "/" is writable by the web-server.

 

If anyone can help me with this, it would be awesome, thanks.

Hi @ianfe24,

 

Probably your files owner is not the same than the user than runs the webserver.

For that reason you webserver can't write the file. Can you check that?

create one folder inside magento directory and set 777 permission.

 

In sitemap give path value /test/ and save it.

 

Where test is my directory name.

Hi @ianfe24, @Sunil Patel,

 

Please try to avoid the 777 permission. It will be a security risk.

Try to set the owner of those files/directories with the same user than the one is executing the webserver process.
