I've a problem with my WordPress website getting updated after I make changes to its code:

I'm using phpStorm with auto-save, running the website on WAMP, locally. Therefore, right after I right new code, the file in which I write the code in should be updated, and the website quickly after that.

Yet the website doesn't update.

I'm not using any cache plugins, and in my browser, Chrome, I disabled caching.

Also, it does get updated, but only after I make changes to the website - like disable and then enable again a plugin - so it can store new cache, but for some reason, it doesn't do it automatically, and keeps using old cache when I don't make any changes via the dashboard.

Why does this happen and how can I fix it?

  • Hi. You said you aren't using any cache plugin, but then you mentioned about storing a new cache. – Jack Johansson Apr 1 '17 at 15:04
  • I meant that WordPress does that somehow. I haven't configured for it to do it, and I don't know of anything that I've done that could cause this behavior. – Gal Grünfeld Apr 1 '17 at 15:05
  • Have your searched your wp-content folder for any cache file/folder? – Jack Johansson Apr 1 '17 at 15:08
  • I haven't. I'll check and update. – Gal Grünfeld Apr 1 '17 at 15:09

    Well there is definitely some sort of caching going on. Either a plugin like JetPack, or a server-side cache. This article can be useful in your case. – Jack Johansson Apr 1 '17 at 15:16
