Question Really Wierd: Websites keep going back to old versions

The following is on CentOS 4

I have been having a REALLY wierd thing happening lately. I run my own servers and design all of my websites. I usually use Dreamweaver or Quanta to do this. Occasionally I will put an announcement there for a special - which ends a few days later.

The thing that happened today is that I looked at my site, and a special that I had announced back in early December and had removed on the 9th of December had come back today (the 13th of December) so that everyone could see it.

I don't know how this is possible! I have my server set to create 4 backup copies per day of my half-gig sized server data and I have it transfer it over to another server, but it is tar.gz format which rules that out.

I am soooo baffled how files could just bring themselves back to old versions.

Has anyone else experienced this?

[edit]My backup is with cron through a shell script that I created. It copies all data that I am backing up into a directory at /root and then it tars and gzips it making it ready for transfer to the other server.[/edit]

Silly question, but is it actually the files on the webserver itself changing, or is not simply a case of an error in browser loading the page from it's cache incorrectly (in which case clear the browser cache)...?

It shouldn't be the cache since I just erased it yesterday and the file was from last week. Who knows, it could be a bug in Firefox 1.5.
