Are you sure you are uploading to the correct location?
If your site definition wasn't exactly right, if you had a redundant root folder for instance, files would upload but not appear when you view them online. Posting a screenshot of your expanded Files window from DW might rule that out.
It could also be a browser cache issue. Clear your browser cache and check again if you haven't already.
Thank you Jon, I'm not that proficient in DW, Where do I find the expanded files window?
The Files window has a button called Expand (two square with an arrow icon). It allows you to see the Remote and Local files at the same time. It should be on the far right of the Files window tool bar. When you click that, it will expand the view to show both once you've connected to your server.
Thank you Jon, here it is.

Looks like something goofy happened to your image, All I see is a broken image icon.
If you tried to send it via email, it won't work, you need to come to the forum and use the little camera icon in the forum reply area.
Make sure you save the image as a .jpg or .gif first, then insert it using the forum reply toolbar.
I hope you can read that Jon. I can try and make it bigger if not.
This might be a browser caching issue.
What's the URL to your site?
Which page did you change and what exactly did you change on the page so we can test it in our browsers?
Yep, you appear to have a redundant root folder locally, the folder named html.
If you are supposed to be uploading to a remote server root named "html" given to you by your hosting company and that folder is in your site settings as the server root, you would not then duplicate that folder within your local site.
Your local root folder's name doesn't matter, since you're only transferring the contents of the local root to the server root. Right now, you are set up to transfer the folder "html" to your server root. If you go to your website (whateve.com) and add /html/pagename.html to the URL you'll see your updates.
You should be able to drag the files and sub-directories out of that html folder and to the folder that shows "Site- roopho..." to get them into their correct position. DW will update the links for you.
EDIT: you'll need to delete the duplicates from your server and re-upload after everything is in the right spot (within your local root).
Thank you very much. You've been very helpful.
Hi Jon, Something in my set up is creating that html folder. I've looked at DM on my Windows 7 machine and compared everything. My Win7 doesn't create that html folder but my Win8.1 does. I deleted the folder on the remote view and uploaded a test change and DW on 8.1 created it again. Do you know where I can change that flag?
MX2004 is obsolete (and quite old!). Its site definition panel didn't have that Links relative to option. Don't worry about it.
Here's an idea, if you have it working correctly on another machine, maybe exporting the .ste file for that site and importing it onto the machine that doesn't work will clear up the issue.
1. From the working computer open DW
2. Go to site > Manage Sites > Export (this creates a .ste file, remember where you save it)
3. Copy the .ste to the other machine
4. On the bad site machine, open DW
6. Go to Site > Manage Sites > Import and browse to the newly copied .ste
7. Verify that the new site links to your current files under local info
8. Test the connection
9. If it works, save and go to the Files window
10. Upload a file that is not within the html folder
11. If it works, without adding the html folder to your server, you should be able to safely delete the old site definition
