Website not responding - possible cache issues?
My daughter has a very simple Python program that is linked to a few very simple HTML pages. Up until two days ago, everything was working fine.
Then, two days ago, she made basic textual changes to a couple of HTML pages - but they did not reflect in the actual webpage. We tried different browsers, cleared browser cache - still, nothing.
Then, next day - her changes showed up. So we chalked it up to cache issues. Perhaps the cache was cleared on the server side and all was well.
So she made a few more changes. And again, they did not reflect right away. So we though, OK, they will show up the next day.
Now, we cannot access the website at all! When we type in the URL, the browser just waits and waits and waits - and nothing.
I can ping the server and it returns data, so the physical server is obviously up.
Would appreciate any thoughts on what might be causing this issue or how we can check if this is a caching issue. We have not made ANY other changes - to the Droplet OR to the Python app.
Oh, there was a swap file yesterday that we deleted. But that’s about it.
