Question

Not serving up-to-date Javascript

My server is not serving updated JS files; the ones served are not the ones in the code but old ones. I can make changes to HTML okay, but not to JS, so this means the server is responding since I seem some changes. I added a log to test. Then looking in the network tab, I can see the code of the log is not there. I’ve restarted the app itself as well as Nginx with service nginx restart to no avail (many many times)

I know the reset works because the html will update after restart but the JS will not.

I know this is a Digital Ocean problem because I fixed the app locally and it works. I even deleted the app from the server, and cloned a new version with the changes, booted this up but STILL the problem persists.

It says from memory cache in the dev tools but I don’t know what this means. How do I clear the server cache if such a thing exists? How can this persist across deletion of the app?

I have recently got to know about the new Javascript program that has to game me access to the Netgear router login page which is really very helpful. You must always keep it up to date.
