View Full Version : server shows outdated webpage version

hi there!

I am maintaining my band's website. I actualised the site a few days ago via ftp (I'm using Filezilla), but when I checked the page today, it shows up an older version of it. I immediately checked the ftp-directory and downloaded the whole directory and there are the newest files on it! :confused:
I cleared all the caches and watched it with four different browsers and at 2 different PCs, but it still shows the old outdated version of the page! :confused:

Did anyone of you experienced anything before?


You can see the problem clearly on the guestbook-page: the last entry according to the database-file should be from 08/4/06!

I've never experienced this before. But you could try to delete the file on the server and then upload the new one. Maybe it is a caching issue?

I looked at the guestbook and the last entry shows that date

Did you check the site using the same ISP? What kind of internet connection are you using? Broadband or Dialup? I believe some dialup services cache websites to help speed up their service.

I contacted the server administrator and he told me that the IP of the server has changed and the problem occurs due to that fact.

I don't know the technical details yet, but apparently they were showing a server-backup.
