I am working on a building a website, which requires me to refresh the site to view changes I’ve made in my browser. However, I keep getting an old version when I view it on my HughesNet connection.
I have powered cycled my modem and disabled web acceleration, but it still pulls up the old version of my website. When I use my slower DSL connection, I can see all my new changes, but as soon as I switch back to HughesNet and refresh the website it is the old version again, so it seems to be specifically a HughesNet caching issue. Is there some other cache other than web-acceleration that I can flush or disable?
Not necessarily a HughesNet caching issue (actually I don't think they cache at all), but the latency may be playing a part in the browser recognizing the page had changed. Killing the tab, opening a new one, then loading and optionally shift-refreshing the page should update the browser.
Also, if your site is cached if it is behind a Content Delivery Network (CDN) like Cloudflare (more like a large network of caches). You may have to purge everything in the CDN's cache before doing the above. Sometimes I even have to purge when making changes to my .htaccess file, not just pages.
I seem to go through this all the time regardless of what network I'm using.
Sounds like a DNS issue if switching ISPs shows different versions. If you're on a desktop/laptop you could try doing a DNS flush from command prompt - here's the common Windows method
You should restart your computer after doing this. If that doesn't work, Windows 10 has a "Network Reset" option in the basic settings
If none of the above work or you're not on a Windows computer (let us know, someone can get you iOS steps), you can try resetting your HughesNet modem to clear its internal DNS cache.
Hope that helps!
