When I upload files website still shows my previous version

#1 Post by DevEdwards » 2014-05-11 18:17

I've been doing this website since 2007 and my web pages were created in Microsoft Publisher 2007. I had an ftp connection on my Network to upload my files when I update them. A few weeks ago something happened and I lost my ftp connection on my computer. I've since had to download File Zilla to try to upload my files to my server.

I have no problems with connecting to my server on File Zilla and I see them. I also see my files on my computer on the screen. When I drag my index files to the public html folder it shows that it's transferring the files over to the server and even says that it was successful. When I go to check the website it still shows the previous version.

Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong? I've tried until I'm blue in the face and can't figure it out.

I'm hoping someone can help me before people start asking me why it hasn't been updated.

Thank your for any help anyone can give!!!

Lemme know if that worked..

Me too, I hit 'refresh'.

I used to use a different uploader which was getting expensive, at least they always updated info in server box

We have had the same problem as well but clearing the cache fixes it. I was wondering if there is a way to avoid having to clear the cache. Our problem is that our customers are seeing a blank screen and they think our site hasn't been updated and we get complaints.

Is there any setting when we upload that we can check so that our end viewers don't have to clear their cache?

If a file is cached then you need to wait until cache expiration, there is no way around it.
