I have a weird SSH upload problem with WinSCP v.3.8.x:
I've been using WinSCP for some time now and have never experienced the following before...
I'm trying to upload a file extension, '.tpl' which is a Smarty template extension. I transferred this file like any other file and everything looks fine - even when I review the contents of the transferred file on the remote (right side of window that represents the web server), I see the changes I've made to the file before uploading...SAME TIMESTAMP and EVERYTHING. So far, so good.
I pull up the webpage (IE v.6) and guess what...no change! I refresh the cache (ctrl-F5) of my browser AND have closed all browsers and even looked at it in FireFox...and guess what?...no change. I've check the webpage on a different computer and...no change. I upload the file again using ws_FTP and voila...change! It's like the file is going to the remote side of WinSCP but the server only checks to see if the file name is there but doesn't read the new changes. The reason I know it recognizes the file is because I renamed the file so the web server couldn't find it and a [file missing] error was received. I changed the file name back and the old content from the previous (not current) change was still showing up via the browser. I then made another change to the file (so now it's 2 generations of changes to the file) and the ORIGINAL change is still there, not the 1st nor 2nd revision of the file. ws_FTP (really old version) uploads the file with no problem.
Does anyone know how come this is? I've tried both ascii and binary with...no change. It's like the code is in a mirror, but untouchable for executing. There seems to be some kind of 'cache' that is not letting go to allow the '.tpl' file to be recognized. I upgraded from v.3.8.1 to 3.8.2 yesterday and problem still exists. I had not changed any software params or configuration. Problem came out of the blue...
Thanks in advance.
P.S. I looked in this forum to see if anyone else experienced this and I think I saw 2 (didn't bookmark - used 'cache' as search word)
