Web Page Won't Update
« on: September 28, 2021, 05:11:35 PM »
I recently moved my hosting from HostGator to ICDSoft.com. 
They have been very helpful in making the change.
Since I don't do this very often, I failed to remember that I needed to update my weather program with their server name, etc.
I finally got all that sorted out. 
I upload data about every few minutes, and the program is logging in successfully and uploading new data.
Problem:  My page is not being updated with the new data.  I have a couple of linked maps and one add-on; all of which are current.
Any idea what could be wrong?  I've tried clearing an cache on my end and even tried using a different computer.
Thanks for any suggestions.

When I changed providers, I ran into a similar problem, and I discovered my new hosting provider was server-side caching.  Server side web caching typically involves utilizing a web proxy which retains web responses from the web servers it sits in front of, effectively reducing their load and latency.  I had to contact my provider and have them disable the caching in order to get my most recent data to display.  I'll bet that's where your problem lies, and I'd reach out to ICDSoft about it.

Thank you so much for your observation.
I'll copy your post and share it with my new host.  I hope this is the issue.
