Currently, my friend’s site is hosted by another hosting site. He wants to transfer to DH. One main reason is he can no longer make changes to his site. No matter what he changes in index.htm from the root directory or even rename that file completely, his site (http://broadbent.net/index.htm) appears the same in the browser. So, my question is where in the world is this index.htm picked up from?
He uses Blogger.com to do FTP publishing. From what I can tell, FTP publishing generates an updated index.htm in the root directory – it includes the newest posts (as recent as July 15, 2009). This can be seen when I bring up index.htm from the ftp portal (see screenshot at http://tinyurl.com/oxywjt). However, when I bring it up in http:// format, the newest posts are not there, and it got stuck with some old content (see screenshot at http://tinyurl.com/nxtks5 ). It’s not due to browser cache (tried clearing cache and using new browsers) or server cache (tried appending “?random_request” in URL ).
I could go ahead and help him transfer the hosting, but I’m hesitant to do so unless I figure out this weird problem.
Please help!!! Thank you!
