uploading revised html file
I have revised my web site and have attempted to upload and overwrite the existing pages. The message tells me my upload was successful however when I open my website, it is the same old pages. What am I doing wrong?
First, make sure that you're uploading the new pages to the correct directory (public_html). Beyond that, clear your browser cache (in Internet Explorer, Tools, Internet Options, Delete Files), and make sure your browser is set to check for new versions of pages automatically, or with every visit (Tools, Internet Options, Settings).
I have done all that you suggested and still no luck. Could it have anything to do with the file name/location on my PC?

If you're using the cPanel file manager you need to make sure 'overwrite existing files' is checked above the upload button.
