I uploaded a sitemap.xml to the root of the site.
Verified the site with Google Search Console and gave it the pad to the sitemap but I get the following message:

Sitemap cannot be read
Global HTTP Error

Is this something in Admintools as far as you know?

It could be, assuming you are using the .htaccess Maker.

Go to Components, Admin Tools for Joomla, .htaccess Maker. In the β€œAllow direct access to these files” add a new line with the content


and click on Save and Create .htaccess.
