Resources and FTP: wish


(Peter Schmitz) #1

I expected that Resources is a kind of warehouse where I can put files that on the server are read by the RW-pages.
An example:
I placed a CSV-file into my Resources via RW, and linked it with the stack Table (CSV) - Foundry. Tehn I uploaded the project.
I guessed, when I place the updated CSV-file via ftp in the Resources-folder that the site page would be updated after refreshing it.

But it seems you can only update via RW.

Not sure what you’re saying. If you replace a file on the server, same name and same location, you shouldn’t have any problem with using it.

I don’t know how the stack you’re using is reading it, a URL in question would be helpful.

Make sure you have cleared the browsers cache, make sure you have the exact file name and location.

It could also be that Cloudflare (if you are using that) is caching it too. It can be a few hours before updated files (like csvs) are reflected.

Also, you’ll need to be careful about re-publishing that page now in RW as i presume your updated CSV would get overwritten with the original.

Ah, it is the browser cache. OK.

It works fine!
