Changes to .asp file not updated to web

If the developers make changes to .htm files the saved
changes are updated to the web instantly, but if they
change a .asp file the change does not show on the site,
why is this?

please help

thank you

That is not what is really happening. Computers do what they are told to
do, so I'd say that the user is not telling a computer the right thing,
whether it's the computer that's supposed to save the file, upload it, load
the page (not from cache), etc.

let me start this over

I can watch one of the developers open a .asp file in
FrontPage, make a change, save it back to the location it
was opened from x:\IntPub\<page name>.com\www\< filename>.asp
But when I go to the webserver and open the IIS mmc, and
look at the <filename>.as p file uner <pagename>.co m it is
not updated, and if browsed from the internet the site
still shows the old content on that page

But if on the webserver I go to
x:\IntPub\<page name>.com\www using windows explorer I see
that the file is stamped with a date and time that match
the change, I can open the file from this location in IE
and see the change, and open the file in a text editor and
see the change made in the code

This is not the case with .htm files in the same
x:\IntPub\<page name>.com\www any changes made to these
files post to the internet

It could be a caching issue. I think that if you append some querystring
variables, you might be able to get around the caching. For example:
http://host/filename.asp?somefakevar=1

See if that does anything for you. If so, then it's probably just a matter
of the page being cached (in the browser or at some proxy between your
browser and the webserver). If not, then I'm not sure what to tell you...
it might still be a caching issue (I'm not sure if this method will actually
get around caching issues, but I thought I read once long ago that it
could).

Hope this helps.

Kyle,
There are 2 places caching is occurring that can cause this problem:
First place is on the client's computer. To fix it go in IE to "Tools-->
Internet Options --> General Tab" and click the "Settings" button under the
"Temporary Internet Files" section. Under "Check for newer versions of
stored pages", select "Every visit to the page"

The second place is in IIS on the server. To fix this:
Open Administrative Tools --> IIS and navigate and select the web
application. --> Right-click --> properties. Click the "configurat ion"
button on the "Directory" tab. On the window that appears select the "Cache
Options" tab. Select the "do not cache ASP files" option.

Will I have to re-start IIS if I make the change you
described in the second option?
