Website pulling from Cache: updates don’t show up

When deploying changes to the development environment, they did not show up.  As a reminder, we are using CloudFlare, which caches our website static files.  There are multi levels of caching, such as, caching at the client browser level and cache on the CloudFlare servers.

In order to see my changes in realtime, I had to enable “Development Mode” which:

Temporarily bypass our cache allowing you to see changes to your origin server in realtime.
Note: Enabling this feature can significantly increase origin server load.

Since this also increase origin (i.e. OpenShift) server load, there could be cost implications if using a paid account.
