Updated file not being seen by browsers

Hi all
I updated all the files on my website, http://www.evercwmplus.plus.com, (by deleting everything and then uploading the new ones) this morning at about 8:15 and, on testing it, found an error.
I corrected it and uploaded the new version of the file but, although I can see that it is correct by logging in with FTP, three browsers (Firefox 3.0/Gentoo, Firefox-2.0/XP and Konqueror/Kubuntu) show the old file using "View Source". I have cleared the cache on Firefox/Gentoo but it makes no difference.
I imagine that pages are cached on PlusNet's server but it is now 3 hours later and I left it for an hour before trying again as well.
Does anyone have any advice?
Thanks,
Chris

Re: Updated file not being seen by browsers

Hi Chris,  Is this a "one page" site?  because I cannot get anything else..... Have clicked on the little arrow top centre, but nothing happens, 

also is this a menu for other pages
Anderungen
Neuanfertigungen
Hosen aller art
Kopieren lhrer liebgewonnenen Kleidungsstrucke
Vorhange Kurzen
If so, nothing works on that either !

Chris,
Is this all that is supposed to be on your site
The problem may be in line starting <img src = right as you haven't closed it

Re: Updated file not being seen by browsers

Thanks for your answers.
Yes, you are correct as to the error – I have corrected it and the corrected file is on the web site
This is what "View Source" on the browser shows
<center>
<img src="right.png" border=0 alt="Weiter"</center><br>

and this is what is in the file on the web site
<center>
<a href="img1.html"><img src="right.png" border=0 alt="Weiter"></a></center><br>

I have just FTP'd to the site and cat'd the file.
The problem is that the server (apparently) won't serve this file and persists in serving the old one ....  Embarrassed
Oops, sorry, idiot me! I had a symlink from img0.html to index.html and, on updating img0.html, index.html became the old file (or the symlink was changed into a copy).
Thanks for making me look more carefully at what I was doing.
I hope you don't feel you've wasted your time ...
Thanks again,
Chris

Re: Updated file not being seen by browsers

You need a Syntax Higlighting Editor to save the hair pulling Wink
Such as Notepad2, possibly Notepad ++, or ScITE if you want somthing similar for your UNIX / Linux Boxes?
Might help future issues related to the code side.
As for Symbolic Linking,
I'd only ever use that for Linking Binaries or Modules (mainly Native System Coded Executables) rather than small time files.
But that's a personal thing rather than a recommendation Smiley
Glad the lads helped.
I've been busy lately with 6th Form induction,
so haven't been able to reply to threads  until now.
Jim,
