    Hi this caching setting doesn’t appear to be for the website server? Is there another…please advise.

    I’m using whm/cpanel, and I’m noticing my changes to my wordpress website are not reflecting in real-time. I clear browser caching constantly and retest, but the changes do not take effect. They only show when I’m logged into wp-admin. Please advise.
