How to delete (wrong) 301-redirections?

  • I defined on my website a (wrong) 301 redirection in my htaccess-file. I visited my site with the Vivaldi browser and I was redirected. After the correction of my 301-redirection Vivaldi still redirects to the old (wrong) target. In another Browser my changed redirect is ok. I found no way up to now, to get the actual redirect with Vivaldi. I'm quite sure, Vivaldi stores the 301-redirection in a cache and my htaccess-file is never rechecked by Vivaldi (that's no error, I can agree to this behaviour). But I'm looking for a manual way to delete this redirect value. I tried to delete the wrong 301-redirection via Tools->History->Clear browsing data.But it didn't help. Is there another way to delete or execute a new analyze of the htaccess-file?

    Which Vivaldi version, on wich OS?

    That looks like a caching problem.
    If you clear the Vivaldi cache, the redirect should go to the new address.

    I dont know which Cache settings (f. ex. http header fo Expires etc) your server has.

    You can inspect such redirects after starting Developer Tools (Ctrl+Shift+I) in tab "Network".

  • Uuuu, when I posted the question I thought I forgot something:

    OS is Windows 7.

    The hint with the development tools was good:

    Status Code:301 Moved Permanently (from cache)

    I deleted now my complete cache (including the Cached Images and files) - now my redirection works OK again.

    I thought redirects should be part of Cookies and other site and plugin data

    Sorry, my fault. Thanks for the help.

    Please check your server settings about Caching and its http headers.
