New webmaster in Linux. Question: When I post a new file the old one displays


Why when I post a new file say a pdf with the same name as the old one, when I click to see it the old one displays instead of the new one. I have cleared the browser cache and believe it to be cached elsewhere. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A little more detail...

I am uploading new files to the webserver and using wordpress to administer the website. When checking the files in my internet explorer browser to see what I have uploaded I only see the old file when I click on that pdf with the same name as the old pdf. I can upload the same file with a new name and the new file would display when clicked on but if I click on the newly uploaded file that was to replace the exisitng file, the old pdf will display.

so this is how to use wordpress? check the file your've uploaded on the server and check which version it is that way, that will totally transparent.

Hi Barryfree,

Uploading a new file with same name will not automatically delete the old one in every server. In most cases the new file will be saved with something added at the end of the file name and the old file will remain unchanged. An easy way would be, you rename the old file first (for example filename-old or add the date with it) and try to upload the new file then. Hope this will help.

Thanks!
