Google Sitemap xml not generating

I just installed the Google Sitemap plug-in (thanks!) but it doesn't seem to generate the sitemap.xml.gz file. Can't find it in the base FTP path.

I am sure I am missing something simple, so ... any hints of why this could be? The s9y installation in question does only contain few articles (ca 6) and a reasonable number of menu links.

My first idea would have been that maybe you're on a host which does not support gzip compression, but then I read that in that case, the plugin will automagically fall back to just a sitemap.xml (and return to .xml.gz if gzip becomes available).

Another idea (which depends on the server setup) would be that the plugin (most likely the web server user) does not have write permissions in the "base FTP path".

Problem solved ... though not sure how :)
I generated a custom sitemap.xml, uploaded it via FTP, and since then, s9y overwrites and updates it regularly, as intended.
Seems as if s9y had problems creating the sitemap.xml file itself.
