Can't Change a PHP Page Under HTTPS?

I need to make a quick change to a page in our secure section (HTTPS) to have a link people can go to to check our terms of service. But it doesn't seem to want to accept any changes, no matter where I put them, the page remains the same before. Is this something the HTTPS is preventing? If so, how do I fix this? If not, what could the problem be then?

https for secure conection which encrypt the data which being sent..i am not sure how could https can prevent you from showing a link...i guess showing us the code will be helpfull.

It's a bit big, over 200 lines, mainly due to the Country selection. I'll trim out a large portion of the countries so as to not be so big on the forum here. No sensitive data shown here from what I can read.

Code removed since it is no longer relevant

Basically, we wanted to try and fit the basic text and link at the bottom, below the code but above the footer bit. For some reason though, it doesn't want to change. No idea why since other sections change fine, I figured it was the HTTPS causing problems at first. But if it isn't that, what would prevent the changes then?

There could be something like a router caching the pages between you and the server, if your network has something like that set up. It could also be that the server looks for SSL content in a different place than HTTP content, it's possible to set a server up to do that.

Uploads are always successful. Yet the changes don't appear. Although I do notice that there are a few other pages named the same way in different areas of the website. Perhaps even though the path on the public side says https://www.blah.com/cart_checkout.php, it can only be modified by one of the pages with the same name further back. I'll have to test to find out.

Add a new HTML file into the non-SSL web directory, and then see if you can access it using SSL. If you can, then the server is serving both secured and unsecured content from the same place. If you can't, then you need to find out where the SSL port is looking for files.
