Well, there is a space character in the output, and this space character is also on your main page and everywhere else.

So the sitemap xml starts with 'space <?xml' instead of '<?xml' which XML takes offense to. Your HTML likewise starts with 'space <!DOCTYPE' instead of '<!DOCTYPE' which browsers ignore. So something outputs extra space on every page, you just don't notice it normally.

Maybe one of your PHP files has a stray space at start or end. If so bomfix.php above might find it. Maybe some other code misbehaving in some other way.

You could debug it in PHP directly I guess (try your luck with headers_sent() function, if something sends space character out early, it will give you filename and line).

Alternatively download the sitemap as a file (with wget) and then check out its source code (with hexdump -C as byte order mark would be invisible otherwise). Then you'd at least know what to look for.

I had a MyBB "plugin" hack to find potentially broken PHP files some ages ago. There should be other tools around to do this better...

After i installed it says me i have these errors.

should i do it to fix those things what it has said ?

RE: Google SEO 1.8.4 - frostschutz - 2021-08-19

if you don't have a problem there is nothing to fix.

in case of problems, bomfix.php just gives you a hint of where the culprit may be. the "?> missing" is a false positive in most cases since MyBB no longer uses ?> at the end of its PHP files anyway. it's only a problem if there is actually a ?> (followed by non-newline) at the end of PHP, as that would end up in the output

the only thing that stands out is that you seem to have a .php file in uploads, that's a bit odd since users should not be able to upload php code that would be executed by the server. so no idea what uploads/zipper.php is supposed to be, maybe check that its not malicious

Thank you so much for your help so far.

I ran bomfix and one of the php had a space
in front of " <?php" I remove that and click on sitemap
at the ACP plugin page and got this display.

Not sure if it means everything is oka?

Yes, that should be fine. Everything else depends on your sitemap settings and forum permissions.

Since i installed the plugin i got an error in Adsense saying theres an Error indexing ads, it can have a loss of revenues.
(Clicking on Action goes to a "...not ready to procceed the page. Our engineers know the error and will fix" page)

I've been into the Google Console Search and sent again everything for indexing and i get no errors in both pages (main website in wordpress and subdomain forum in mybb).

i've edited .htcaccess (uploaded as txt) like it was mentioned in the plugin so i dont know what to do more. Everything works perfectly except that.

sitemap.xml on the main site
sitemap-index.xml on the mybb

both uploaded without error.
