I run a slashsite called IRuleThe.net, and for the longest time I thought that my web browser was just caching my site & it wouldn't update. Just a little while ago I realized that slash always updates the index.shtml about every five minutes(which I had set in the config file), yet for some strange reason the index.pl version of my site would NEVER update. The only way I could get it to update was to shutdown apache completely & then start it back up. Quite odd. The stories will update now, but if lets say I add a poll to the site, it won't update unless I restart apache in the previously disclosed method. Does anyone have the faintest idea on how to fix this, I'm willing to post any/all configuration files if you need them, I just would like to end this madness as soon as possible, RobD"
