One Problem Has Now Become Two

I hope someone can help me with this.

 

My first problem has been that changes I make are not reflected on the web page. I refreshed, emptied PC cache. Both did not work. The only way I could get the page to load correctly was if I rebooted my PC, which of course I cannot do each time I make a change. However, the last time I rebooted, the correction was still not loaded. So, I got the bright idea that it might have something to do with catalog/cache directory that I seem to recall I created as a result of a contribution. Anyway, I renamed the files in the cache directory and I thought everything was okay. The index page loaded as expected, but now when I click on a category, it doesn't go to the correct page, it just remains on the same page.

 

1) I don't know why when I click on category/product, the link doesn't seem to work. It seems to be related to the cache issue, but I don't know if that makes sense.

 

2) If I get this fixed, how can I resolve my page refreshing problem? It is very frustrating.

 

Thanks for your help.

Admin section > Tools > Cache Control

 

Clear your cache. Or just turn caching off:

 

Configuration > Cache

 

There are two caches: one your browser keeps, and one the server keeps.

 

Thanks for responding. I checked admin/configuration/cache, and the value is set to false. Do you have any other thoughts as to why it takes so long to see my changes. I've noticed that if I'm patient enough that I will eventually see the changes. But takes way too long. Also, what the disadvantages (if any) of having cache set to false? Thanks.

Can anyone help me with this? I don't know why my pages do not refresh when I make changes. I have to wait a considerable amount of time before seeing my changes.

 

I thought it had something to do with cache, but I don't have cache turned on.

 

Any suggestions?

Hi robert,

 

I see 3 possibilities:

 

1- Upload is not made right.

2- Your server is caching results.

3- Your browser is caching results.

 

 

1- Check your FTP programm setting.

Is your FTP caching local directories or not overwriting the file on your server ? -> Rename the file on server and upload again.

 

2- Changes are made, but your server or OSC is caching the "old" results.

Ask your ISP if he is doing some magic there.

 

3- Saying that after you restart your PC everything was then OK, means probably that your Browser is or at least was caching the pages. Delete cache and set refresh on every page request.

 

Hope It helped a bit.

 

Ciao

Hello,

 

Thanks for your response.

Now, I am discovering that rebooting does not always solve my refresh problem.

 

Do you by any chance know if the page cache contribution (#2561) could be causing this problem? I'm afraid I can't say whether I noticed this problem after installing this or not. This contribution may not have any bearing on this issue, but it seems as though it is a cache issue.

 

Any thoughts. Thanks alot!

well, first stop that rebooting nonsense.

 

it is ofcourse helpful if you mention that you installed page cache.

 

so delete your page cache files.
