Not a Single File in The Directory and yet Website Is Not Updating


This is my website and it is a static website. The problem is though there is not a single file in the directory but yet it’s showing everything as before which means that the site is not updating in real time. I had talk with hosting support and they said it’s not an issue from their end.

And now I have just noticed an option on CloudFlare’s Account Home > Caching > Always Online where it says,

If your server goes down, Cloudflare will serve your website’s static pages from our cache.

It was ON but now I have turned it off and yet it is the same. What could be the reason?

We hear that a lot around here. And generally don’t believe them.

It’s totally coming from your server, though:

Oh! What could be the solution then?


First, does that look like the IP address of your server?

If so, then your site may be cached internally in the server and the server cache needs to be purged.

I also suggest you use the Pause Cloudflare on Site option from the Overview section while you troubleshoot this.


Uh yes I hope so it is the same IP address.

And yes I have purged the cache several times and already one time 15 hours back.
And just now I have paused the site from CloudFlare and activated the development mode and yer no good result.
