I just installed the Yoast plugin on my Wordpress blog, so that I can automatically create my sitemap xml. However when I visit the page sitemap_index.xml I get a "404 page not found" error. Why isn't my sitemap there?

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
- "Your question should be specific to WordPress. Generic PHP/JS/SQL/HTML/CSS questions might be better asked at Stack Overflow or another appropriate Stack Exchange network site. Third party plugins and themes are off topic, they are better asked about at their developers' support routes." – cybmeta, Pieter Goosen, TheDeadMedic, Mark Kaplun, shea
Go to Admin > Settings > Permalinks and click save without altering anything
"Sometimes resetting the permalink structure will quickly solve a 404 error from a recent change to your installation."
