There is no additional step required. If the file appears on the FTP server it should be reflected immediately when you access it through your browser.
You can try the following:
1. Delete the file on the FTP server using SmartFTP
2. Refresh the file/page in the browser
3. If the page still shows then you have either deleted the wrong file or the page is served from a cache
I deleted the file from the server and could still see it when I view the website. I hit refresh and control-refresh and shift-refresh and it was still there.
I have no idea how I could have deleted the wrong file when I only have one set of files and I have checked the link properties, etc. This is the same thing I have been doing for 2 years and all of a sudden it doesn't work.

This was the log from when I deleted it then transferred it back out there (I've done it twice now). Does that look like it worked? May be a stupid question, but I can see the file (on the left side of my SmartFTP screen), and it is the correct version, so back to the previous question, since I can see it on the left side of my screen and it's correct, why can't I see it on the web? And if the transfer didn't work, why can I see it on the left side of my screen?
