Sitemap Storage Location

Can someone tell me where vBulletin 4.2.5 typically stores sitemaps when they are generated via the Admin CP please?

I know in the Admin CP >> Settings >> Options >> XML Sitemap...there's an entry field for "sitemap file path".

I think the file path that's currently entered in there now is not correct...and I wanted to enter the filepath that would be more "normal". Can someone please tell me what the "normal" file path would be for sitemaps when the vBulletin software generates them?

Thanks

Usually I rename it to ./sitemaps
And make a folder in the root of the forums with same name and make that folder writeable "chmod 777"

Hey Seven Skins...thanks for the reply. Was doing some searching around...and found that the default vBulletin storage location file path is ./store_sitemap (but I'm sure any name will do such as what you mentioned ./sitemaps).

Is the decimal point in the beginning of the name super important (./sitemaps)...or will /sitemaps work too?

Thanks as well for the info on making the folder writable "chmod 777". Would "chmod 750, 755 or 775" work as well? I see a bunch of directories on my server are "750, 755 or 775"?

Thank you

A followup question on this. If my server is setup as:

public_html >> forums

When you say make a folder in the root of the "forums" with the same name. Do you mean make the folder in the public_html directory...or the public_html >> forums directory?

Thanks again.

Decimal point means the same folder as the current folder.
Slash means all the way back to root folder of your sever.

IT should be in public_html >> forums

e.g. public_html/forums/sitemap
