One ad-hoc solution is to name your file


and then access it using URL:


That would work due to Interchange assuming .html extension
(configurable with HTMLSuffix directive) if you don't write
one yourself.

Another option might be periodically doing something like

wget http://.../productdump.html > htdocs/products.xml

and then give Froogle link to that .xml page in the docroot,
outside of catalog's pages/ directory.
