Google will NOT automatically index all versions of "generated" pages by your php script... If you want each page indexed, you will need to make each page discreet, i.e. a unique URL and not a generated page as a result of php processing!

You then will need internal links to each of those pages...

Simple solution:

Make a "site map" page link on the first page that has links to EVERY page you want indexed... This way Google will see the site map page and follow each link therein, indexing each reference along the way.

I just looked further and see that, in fact, you DO have a "site map"... It just isn't setup yet!   You will want to expedite creating that page, make sure it was a link to EVERY page you want indexed by Google and your problem should be cured!

The sitemap should be a html file in my website or a xml file? And should I upload the xml to Google.
Thank you very much!

Should be html... Uploading to Google is optional...
