Web Site not Updating when File Uploaded

P: n/a
I am trying to upload a new version of a file that already exists on my web
site. It asks me to overwrite and I choose yes. But when I go to the web
page, even a half hour after the upload, the orginal content of the page is
still there. I have tried uplaoding several times in IE and FTP voyager.
There are no errors reported during the upload. FTP voyer is using binary
upload for sure.

Also, I deleted the file I am trying to update on the web site in the FTP
program but the orginal file is still there!? When I type the URL of the
orginal file, it appears in its orginal state. I would expect a page not
found error since the file is deleted.

I have cleared the temporary files in IE, used refresh, and closed all
windows and went to the page again. However, the orginal file is still there.
I'm not sure what this web site is running, but it supports ASP. I think its
IIS. I have experienced this same porblem on other web sites run with IIS.
The file I am trying to upload is an ASP file with VBscript. Any ideas on how
I can fix it? Thanks for the help.

My guess is that if you delete the file and refresh the browser and the page is still there, you are
1. Deleteing the wrong file
2. In the wrong Directory
3. Uploading to the wrong directory

If you are positive that its none of the 3 above - you are probally running IIS with some sort of mirrorig/load balancing combo
where you will need to unload the deal and then relaod it into service. Make sure you are in the right directory first.

I am 100% sure it is the right file in the right directory. When I upload a
file named login1.asp, it shows up immediately. But the changes to login.asp
(the orginal file) are not present even though the file was overwritten and
then deleted. The web server is not on site so I'm not sure what its running.

Do most web hosting companies use mirroring or load balancing? I'm not sure
what the one that I have uses.

You might also be seeing a cached version of the page. I had that
happen to me when I first started doing asp.

How do I get a page that isn't cached? I have tried using refresh and I
deleted the temporary files. The page I deleted is also still there on
another PC.

Some hosts cache asp pages for "x" views.

Write a new page - upload it, open it, upload a new version of the same page
with subtle differences and see if the original exists still.

Contact your host and ask if asp pages are cached at the server.
If so, turn it off, its a real pita

Do you have access to the IIS server? If so goto Services
in Control Panel and try restarting the IIS Admin
service. I had a similar problem to this on Tuesday.

I was even able to delete the folder the site was stored
in and IIS continued to service it (minus all the images).

Restarting the IIS Admin service cured the problem and its
been ok since.
