Sitemap Creator 0.2 beta

New Version is available. Click here

Sitemap Creator crawls/spiders your website creating XML sitemaps compatible with the standard sitemaps.org protocol supported by Google, Yahoo!, MSN and MoreOver. The script pings Google, Yahoo!, MSN and MoreOver bots to download the sitemap file, then tracks the bot and sends you an email on every scan to your Sitemap and gives you a full report of the Search Engine respond.
Sitemaps are created from a CSV file which could easily be edited using any text editor before creating the sitemap.

Configure sendmail to accept emails only if “from”, “to” or specific field matches

you can exclude an email address or even a host that is spamming you using the access file located in your etc directory, the bad news is that it does not support regex or even wildcards.

However, mod_cml was replaced by mod_magnet which is more flexible and gives more control over request handling in Lighttpd. This Article will focus on caching your PHP scripts using Lua and mod_magnet under Lighttpd,
