Hi, i’m pretty new at back-end world. I made some edits on my Ubuntu Server Api on iTerm ssh, but it is still returning old values. Is it take some time or did i make something wrong ?

Usually, if you change the files directly on your server via SSH, the change should be instant. Unless you are changing some static files like JS or CSS files which might be cached locally on your browser, in this case you would need to clear the cache of your browser or use an incognito window in order to see the changes.

Hope that this helps!
