I have successfully installed and used Yoast SEO plugin in my WordPress -WooCommerce site but I am unable to generate sitemap.xml or sitemap_index.xml.

I have tried almost all the options available on Google like:

  1. Reset permalinks

  2. added the rewrite rules to htaccess file as describe in http://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-tutorials/how-to-fix-yoasts-wordpress-seo-sitemap-404-error/

My .htaccess code is :

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^sitemap_index.xml$ /index.php?sitemap=1 [L]
RewriteRule ^([^/]+?)-sitemap([0-9]+)?.xml$ /index.php?sitemap=$1&sitemap_n=$2 [L]
