Can't edit background image

Post by Torini » Wed Oct 20, 2021 5:33 pm

Well this has exhausted me at least.
My site has login page https://skymanmentalist.com/index.php/pages/login
The background image is located in specific folder that I accessed with Filezilla and successfully deleted the background image.
The image doesn't go away in reality! It stays somewhat somehow and I can view it at
https://skymanmentalist.com/templates/s ... -image.jpg
I deleted the installation folder and the above link still works and shows the image!
I deleted everything and still the the above link still works and shows the image!
It's like having a ghost!
What is wrong? Why I can't get rid of it noway?

Thank you very much

If you deleted the image file, clear the server cache and browser cache and reload the page.

It was CDN setting that didn't allow the cache to be cleaned!
Asura Hosting support helped immensely with this ghost mystery...
At last, relieved...!
