Hi there,

Are you using the DigitalOcean App Platform?

If so note that you should not edit the files on the App Platform directly as the storage there is ephemeral, meaning that once your app gets redeployed your changes will be lost. Because of this, you should make changes to your GitHub project directly and then redeploy your app so that your changes will be deployed from your GitHub repo to the App Platform.

If you are using a Droplet instead of the App Platform, are you making static file changes? (js, css, etc.) you may need to run collectstatic.

Let me know how it goes!
