    I get the following error on my web page (

    Could not save XML file

    Could not save marker XML file (/home1/cmslaser/public_html/wp-content/uploads/wp-google-maps/1markers.xml) for Map ID 1

    I get this error on my admin page at the same time. That folder is set to 755 and it doesn’t matter if it’s set to 777…I still get these errors.

    WP Google Maps cannot find the directory it uses to save marker data to. Please confirm that /home1/cmslaser/public_html/wp-content/uploads/wp-google-maps/ exists. Please also ensure that you assign file permissions of 755 (or 777) to this directory.


    Hi cmslaser,

    I had the same problem and I have fixed the bug with the following steps:

    1.) Search the file called wpGoogleMaps.php (situated in plugin folder). Go to line 1886

    Change$plugins_url = trim($plugins_url, '/');to$plugins_url = trim($plugins_url, '/wp-google-maps/');

    2.) Please check in the backend, if under MAPS>SETTINGS>ADVANCES SETTINGS “Marker data XML directory” and “Marker data XML URL:” are on {uploads_dir}/wp-google-maps/

    Now it works…
