Website isnt updating / working?

Here’s the deal. My website was working fine before, I could make a folder, and it would show up in the directory thing that was there since there was nothing else yet.

Yes, it should work.

A couple of things to check;

Check the capitalization of your directory/file names, it is possible that case sensitivity is causing your problems.

Is your web browser configured to use a proxy? If so, it is possible that the proxy is caching the site. Try disabling the proxy (if possible).
