Server not recognizing changes to BMP image

My company has four severs that all run RHEL. The company that installed them have a company logo on each desktop along with a uniques server name on each logo.

We recently decided to change the name of the servers, but would like to keep the logo that has the company name on it. However, the names of the servers have to be changed on the logo.

Since the RHEL servers do not have GIMP, I ftp'd these bitmap images to my Fedora machine, which has GIMP, and I changed the name of the server on each logo.

I ftp'd it back to the servers, but when I went to set the bmp as my background, the changes I made were not visible. It was if I never did anything to it.

I went back to my Fedora machine and double checked that the changes were saved...which they were. I re-ftp'd it, and still no change.

Not sure why this is happening.

Any ideas?

Are you sure you're using the image from the server and not a cached copy from your local machine? I'd check which image you download. If you're using HTTP, just try it with any web browser.

Yep, probably a caching issue at the client and/or the server.
Generally, using shift+reload (ie hold down the shift key and click on reload button on your browser) forces the server to re-read the 'current' page from ther disk, rather than from it's cache.
It's a typical (annoying) issue when doing web development.
Worst case scenario you have to bounce Apache.
Of course, also ensure that you put the file back in the right dir with correct perms/ownerships as well.
