View Full Version : can't see updated files in browser

10-22-2008, 12:44 PM
I've been using DW to update my site daily for years. now all of a sudden when I upload my updated files I can't see the changes online. I've emptied the caches, looked at the site on different computers with different browsers but it always shows the same old version. I even deleted the file from the server and it still shows! and the strangest thing is, when I download the file in DW or other FTP clients I get the updated version of the file.
the updated file is on the server and the caches are emptied, so why can't I see the correct files?

try ctrl + F5 when refreshing the page

jeanius, it might be that your isp is caching some of the pages. Are you using AOL?

I tried ctrl + F5 when refreshing - didn't work.

the file is on the server. when I download it it shows correctly in DW.

I live in switzerland so I'm using a isp from here. do I need to contact them?

You already emptied your cache so CTRL+f5 is not going to do anything different for you.

If you are 100% confident that you have the file on the correct place on the server, and that your ISP is not fetching it, I would call them. My guess is that you're uploading the files to the wrong spot.

Sometimes the actual servers have cached versions of pages (between their server cluster) as to not increase their bandwidth. How long have you had the correct version uploaded?
I even deleted the file from the server and it still shows!
But I agree with domedia, they seem to be in a different directory/location than you are trying to access.

I've contacted my isp, there seems to be a problem on their side.
thanx for your help!
