Publishing .ascx file to Azure Web Application Service from Visual Studio is not updating the file on Azure WebApp file system

Benjamin Newton 1 Reputation point

When publishing files, such as .css, to my azure web application service the changes are implemented instantly and viewable on the live site. However, when publishing file such as web part layout files (.ascx) the changes are not being displayed. The changes are being published through Visual Studio, and VS says that the file(s) have been published successfully.

When checking the file system of the web app through Kudu however, the changes to the published file are not there.. hence the live site not showing the changes.

Why is this the case? And how do I force Azure to update my files so I can implement changes?
