How to I save data to the back end on flask when using nignx to host my site live

I have a couple buttons that upon clicking adds or deletes data from an array stored on the flask app. This serves as a database of sorts. Everything works fine when testing it locally, but when I host my site live using nignx, it doesn’t seem to save the data right. If I refresh the page it’ll pull a different instance of the data each time. How do I make sure it only refreshes the most recent data?

This sounds like you are storing the data in a dictionary, which is unsorted by default. What you might need to do is update your query code to search through the dictionary for the latest key value that you desire OR to update the code using something like OrderedDict, which is available via the collections module.

If you need more pointers or I am misunderstanding the issue, please provide more details about the code and use case :) Good luck!
