I have a strange issue that I really would like to know more about.
Yesterday I was deploying a new site on my hosting server. The day before I switched from
PHP 5.2.17 to
PHP 5.4.10 on the server. The strange thing was that the version was still reported to be
5.2.17? I asked a co-worker to go to the site and he got the correct version. Finally, I turned of my VPN (not used for this specific server) and instantly I could see the server running the correct PHP version. Now I would really like to know why this would ever happend? The only thing I can think of is that this must be some kind of caching issue in conjunction with the running VPN tunnel?
If I create a new file over SSH in the webroot I cannot access the file though my browser, instead I receive a 404 page. If I turn of or restart my VPN this error goes away.
I'm using Juno Pulse as my VPN client.
Another interesting thing that I noticed is that after I restarted the VPN client the page reports the correct version again.
