Nginx Rewrite error for Yoast

  • Posted May 10, 2014

I am getting this error for yoast sitemap. As you’re on NGINX, you’ll need the following rewrites:

rewrite ^/sitemap_index.xml$ /index.php?sitemap=1 last; rewrite ^/([^/]+?)-sitemap([0-9]+)?.xml$ /index.php?sitemap=$1&sitemap_n=$2 last;

I added the code to sudo nano /etc/nginx/sites-available/default But still the problem persists. Please help

I just ran into this. I don’t think this is really an “error”. I put the rewrites in my config, reloaded Nginx, and the message is still showing. I don’t think Yoast checks if the rewrites are there, it’s just warning you to put them in if you’re on Nginx.

Are you using any caching plugins like w3tc? <br> <br>Also, are you sure default.conf is the correct file for your site?

Ya…I restarted Nginx but the problem is still there

Hey, did you try restarting nginx after making these changes?
