Fios Cache?

Message 1 of 5

I have seen others with the same issue. When doing web development, pages are not refreshing even though browser cache as been emptied. This implies that Fios is caching (for speed reasons), This causes any web development to be a major pain. Is there a way to reset the Fios Cache so that fresh up-to-date pages are pulled from the server?

CTRL + F5  to bypass cache for refresh



Forcing the server to re-render

Bypassing your own cache might not be enough if the updated content that is not being properly displayed is contained in a template or other transcluded page. You may need to purge the server cache of old versions of the page in order for the new material to be visible.

The server can be instructed to refresh its cache of a page's contents with the action=purge URL parameter. Add this to the end of the URL, or in place of the action=edit oraction=history.

For example, to purge this page – which forces the latest version of wikimarkup to be rendered to HTML – visit




For technical pages you think may need to be purged on a regular basis, include {{purge}} (or other related template). Don't put this on article space pages.



You would have tp read the TOS about purging ISP cache,  I have not seen anyone do it, but at the same time I have never seen the question asked.

The issue the OP was talking about has nothing to do with the web server. It's FiOS that is caching the web page.
