Changes to files not immediate with APC caching

when i edit file on server it is not reflected immediatly taking 5 to 10 minutes.

Hello vasagan, and thanks for your question.

Are you editing this file directly on the server using the File Manager Code Editor? Or uploading it to the server via FTP? Or are you logging into a CMS Content Management System in order to make changes to your site?

If it's taking 5-10 minutes for your changes to reflect, then it sounds like possibly some type of caching is happening. At the most basic level you'd want to first try to clear your web-browser's cache. If that doesn't do the trick then depending on your CMS you'd want to:

Clear your WordPress cache

Clear your Joomla cache

Clear your Drupal cache

Clear your Moodle cache

Clear your Magento cache

If none of this is working for you, please let us know what software you're using to make these edits.
