However, the way I generally choose to do this kind of thing is to have the "landing page" (sitemap.xml, etc.) a fixed PHP page that routes dynamic content from a secure source, such as a directory outside the HTTP tree or a database table.
I'm just a bit cautious about CHMOD 777 I don't fully understand the extent of the permissions, ie - can someone write to 777 files or directories from running the necessary scripts on a different server to mine?
It would look someting like this:
.../wrapper_directory/public_html/sitemap.xml <- Actually PHP
.../wrapper_directory/outside_directory/current_sitemap_data.xml <- Read by sitemap.xml and returned to the robot
