[Pro] Changes not reflected after ftp upload

I’ve made a few changes using Freeway Pro. Some are on the Master Page, and some are on individual pages. When I preview in the browser or in the program, the changes show up properly. After uploading the changes though, the old pages are displayed.

I have used Cyberduck and deleted the files off of the server. When I upload I can hit refresh and see the files being saved back onto the server.

If I do a “quicklook” either in cyberduck or in the Mac Finder the pages are showing the correct changes.

It is not an issue with my browser refreshing. I’ve dumped the caches on safari and firefox, used Omniweb for the first time, and even restarted into bootcamp and use IE for the first time loading the pages - they always show the old information.

I am using godaddy.com to serve my site.

Help?

Any particular reason that you don’t use FW to manage your files/upload.

It will keep track of changes and only upload files that have changed for you. It is very easy to make a mistake if you are doing it manually via FTP.

There is also the question of Server cache - some servers will cache pages (for quite some time) and no amount of browser refreshing will help.

GoDaddy is guilty of many strange practices and I wouldn’t be surprised if they did this as well.

I used cyberduck only after uploading through fw wasn’t making the proper changes. I did originally use the built in tools, but then I thought maybe I needed a little brute force to try and see if that would work.

The server cache I guess could be a possibility? I had never run into something like that, but it does sound (un)reasonable…

And, thank you for the quick response. :slight_smile:

Might be worth asking GoDaddy if it is a possibility and if so can they do something about it.

I doubt it’d be GoDaddy. I use the Linux hosting and I’ve never had a problem. Sure you have to do things a bit different at certain times with GD, but I’ve never run into a cache issue. Are you sure it’s uploaded to the right area?

I know a few times I’ve been ready to raise some hell over something that ended up being a typo.

I actually am just getting off the phone with a very nice support person.

It turns out that previously I had forwarded my domain to .mac before I had them hosting my site. Godaddy had me turn off the forwarding, and then edit some areas of the “total DNS control” including an IP address and where things were pointing to. What happened was if I went to http://xxx.com it showed the changes but http://www.xxx.com would not show because it was forwarded.

In the end it was a maddening thing that I do not believe I would have ever found, and it was all in my past settings with godaddy. All is finally good. And here I thought it was something relatively easy.

Well we are glad you are sorted.

It just shows that it is always worth asking your Host if you have a problem - sure sometimes FW doesn’t do what you expect but it is easy to jump to conclusions.

Your situation is fairly unusual but your experience may well benefit somebody else.
