I uploaded a pdf file in my media library and have deleted it out of the library and removed the link on the page; however, when I type in the address the pdf still appears - how is this possible if it doesn't exist in my library?  

I mainly want to do this because I changed the pdf and want the newer version to show up with the same name but it won't change. I have tried deleting and upload the new version; however, the old version is what exists at the link.   I have the link to it my email I sent out to those who sign up.   How can I change it?   I do know I could load it with a different name and change the links in my email marketing but I really don't want both versions on the website.

thanks

Cari, you can't change out the file using the media library.  And you can't rename a file inside of the media library.

You can however replace the file using FTP as long as the file name is identical.

How do I do that?  Not sure what FTP is?  I think I've seen it before.
