PHP posting script, file updated but web still shows last night's file

I wrote a PHP script that allows me to post HTML entries to files on my
server without going through FTP, yadda yadda. It works fine, and last night
it updated both files properly.

Today, it updated both files perfectly again, but only one file is showing
up on the web. I checked the HTML files in my FTP folder, and both are
updated with the new post. To double check, I copied and pasted the contents
of the file as it should be and uploaded it to the correct location, which
is the failproof way to do it. When viewing the file in my FTP folder, it is
ALL THERE. However, switching over to HTTP, which simply reads that same
file in read-only mode, it only shows last night's contents. No update for
today.

I've checked on different computers, so all I can think is that file
permissions got screwed up. Anybody know what's going on?

Thanks...

So your script is making 2 copies of each file - one in your ftp directory and
one in a web-accessable directory?

Could you post some code?

You're sure the file is not being cached by your browser, right?

The php file is on the web server. The web server is updating the files on
the web server. It's updating the files that are already on the web. I'm
trying to figure out why the web accessible file, which is updated when i
login via FTP, isn't updated when I login via HTTP.

Uhh, yeah. It's updating the files on the server, but they're not displaying
in HTTP. It's like port 80 is waiting for something.
