Fix XML sitemaps to work by forcing .htaccess to pick them up. Add this to the .htaccess, above the WordPress rewrites. This version assumes you're using a subfolder install with WordPress installed in /wordpress/, adapt if needed.

whats the nginx alternative for this.

your plugin generates
rewrite ^/sitemap_index.xml$ /index.php?sitemap=1 last;
rewrite ^/([^/]+?)-sitemap([0-9]+)?.xml$ /index.php?sitemap=$1&sitemap_n=$2 last;

but that doesnt work, i get 404s. my sub directory is domain.com/blog/

I also have an install of nginx that forces closing /

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /blog/
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
# WordPress SEO - XML Sitemap Rewrite Fix
RewriteRule ^sitemap_index.xml$ /wordpress/index.php?sitemap=1 [L]
RewriteRule ^([^/]+?)-sitemap([0-9]+)?.xml$ /wordpress/index.php?sitemap=$1&sitemap_n=$2 [L]
# END WordPress SEO - XML Sitemap Rewrite Fix
</IfModule>
