Getting IIS to reflect changes made to webpage files.
Posted on 2004-04-26
I have been having a quirky problem with IIS and my ASPX pages. Sometimes when I upload the new files to the server, the changes are not reflected on the website, or even locally when I use the "Browse" feature for IIS. I have tried the following combinations to update files:
1) Just upload the new files (I am copying them over a mapped drive)
2) Stop IIS, upload the new files, Restart IIS
3) Upload new files, then stop and start IIS
I have yet to find a reliable way for it to work. I've even experienced the problem when i go in an update the source files directly on the web server. Again, this is only a problem sometimes. Other times I upload new files and the changes are reflected immediately. I can't figure out why this is happening.
The server is running Windows SBS 2003. I hope that I am doing something wrong and its not just a problem with IIS.
