Error: The file web.sitemap required by XmlSiteMapProvider does not exist.

This error occurs if XmlSiteMapProvider does not find web.sitemap file. By default it looks for this file in the root of the website therefore if you add web.sitemap file in your website you are likly to get this error.
So to overcome this error simple move web.sitemap file in the root of website if its not in the root. Or if you dont want to have web.sitemap file in the root of website, you can reconfigure XmlSiteMapProvider by adding it in the web.config file of your website.Like...

< siteMap defaultProvider="XmlSiteMapProvider" enabled="true" >
< providers >
< clear/ >
< add name="XmlSiteMapProvider"
type="System.Web.XmlSiteMapProvider, System.Web,Version=2.0.3600.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a"
siteMapFile="~/Resource/web.sitemap"
securityTrimmingEnabled="true"/ >
< /providers >
< /siteMap >

Note : You can ste new path of your we.sitemap in the siteMapFile attribute.
