Updating a PHP website

Help! I’ve volunteered to update a local community website, which is written in PHP. It’s nothing complex, swapping out an image or two and changing some text so it shouldn’t be that hard right?

Well I did a few text changes and uploaded the edited PHP files to the website… but my changes aren’t there!

I re downloaded the php files to make sure the edits were actually there, and they were, so I know I really did make the changes.

So what gives? What am I missing?

This could be a few things. The main one being did you upload to the correct directory? Also, the file permissions could be set so files cannot be changed, so check that also. This page may help with CHMOD: http://php.net/manual/en/function.chmod.php
