Default Why is DW suddenly not putting the changed file?

Greetings group - first post.

Long time user of CS4 and DW but by no means am I a pro - but I'm more than competent in managing two sites.

The problem is strange; I correct a duff link, save the file, put to the server. very simple stuff. I remove the old file from the live site and move the corrected one across. The date stamp on the new file confirms that it's the new one on the live site. However, the bad link still remains! No matter what I do DW will not use the new file. It's like it's acknowledging my new file transfer but replicating the older one.

Obviously I've checked that all the browsers have their cache and history cleared by even by checking the code in the browser I can see that the server is still using the old file - even though the date and time on the file acknowledges it should be the newly corrected one.

Ideas anyone? This has been driving me CRAZY!

My next plan is to pull the whole site from the live side and put it back up again but I'd rather avoid that for now...

delete the incorrect file then up load a new one. if the file data has changed it doesnt make sense unless dw is discarding yuir changes some how.

better yet, use an ftp program like filezilla. I have heard this happenng before with dw

Sounds like you've determined that the file you upload and the file that is being served by the server is two different files, right?

Can you SSH into the server and confirm?
