Using a ZF2 based site.

/var/www/html/app is root and contains module folders with views and public.

Running /var/www/html/app/public via:

`php -S -t public/ public/index.php`

Site loads fine. Within public is my style.css. Edits to this show on the browser.

Here is where I'm lost, module phtml files ie:

(/var/www/html/app/user/view/header.phtml) load fine. But when I make an edit and reload the page, the edits do not show. These files were cloned from git. Permissions are correct. Edit, save file, close, open back up and edits still exist. Just no change on the website.

"Edits made with gedit"

If anyone has any idea, please let me know as I am truly stumped.


  • Did you clear your cache in the browser? – George Udosen Feb 9 '17 at 18:06
  • Yes, I have done a couple things with clearing the browser. The css edit show just fine. – ValhallaSkies Feb 9 '17 at 18:07

It wasn't a cache issue. Composer added the modules to the wrong directory. Placed the modules within vendor and it works fine now.
