I realize Sitemapper has an upload option built-in, however I find these built-in uploaders to be more hassle than they're worth and generally do not work well for me and my style of web design. Is there anything special I should know about manually uploading the sitemap and associated files? File-structure, location, links, special instructions. Thanks in advance :)

When you save your sitemap, it will list all the files and folders that were generated. Simply upload those files to your server.

I also use an FTP application. Just upload everything it lists in your root web directory.

EDIT: Scott beat me to it.

I've been upload my CCSC sitemap using CC's FTP. Then I'd use CC Google Sitemapper to submit to Google. Now I get an error telling me to upgrade my sitemapper software. I read the help manual down to the link to validate the sitemap. It was OK and I used the
Send Notification to Google
Click button below to ping google with your sitemap URL to acknowledge them about your sitemap location.
Will Google find my stuff?

I had no problem with the old sitemapper and the new one has crashed my system twice. Likely something I'm doing.
