    Database changes are not syncing between Local and Dev

    My local environment and dev server share the same umbraco database but are not syncing database changes.

    Whenever I locally change content, properties, document types, etc, the changes are not getting updated on my dev server like I am expecting.

    This is the first time I have used 7. In 4.x I would work locally then just refresh dev and I would see my changes to the database. I am not sure what has changed.

    I have found that I need to delete the contents of the ~/App_Data/TEMP folder in situations similar to this before my changes show up in the second site - looks like Umbraco does some caching in there.

    Are the cahnges not reflected in frontend or in the umbraco backend?

    Umbraco caches your website to make it faster. In the App_Data Folder there is a umbraco.config file which holds the cache.

    If you don't copy that to your dev site your frontend is not updated.

    Backend. Im not refering to the actual published content but the admin data. From testing I found that restarting the app pool on the other server fixes the issue.

    The server side caching is not picking up any changes made to the database. It causes some wierd issues if you publish from a dev site without restarting to get the changes from my local env.

    Even manually refreshing nodes in the admin panel is not getting the latest changes from the database.

    Is there any way to disable this server side caching? I often work on sites were I am making changes to an umbraco database that is being shared between computers.

    Hi Neil,

    I am having the exact same issue and also found that the changes were in the umbraco.config file and an app recycle cleared the backend cache.

    Did you get any further or find a workaround (other than dropping the app recycle time right down like i've done at the moment)

    Cheers Damian
