.htaccess redirecting even though .htaccess changed

Username (e.g. epiz_XXX) or Website URL

https://8ocollective.ml/cobalt

Error Message

https://8ocollective.ml/cobalt (and some subdirectories under it) was set originally in .htaccess to redirect to a github release page. Even after deleting the directory, the .htaccess file, etc. the redirect persists. I would rather it accesses as a directory instead.

At first I thought the site was caching my .htaccess. Well, I must have had my brain on backwards because I was thinking the wrong way around, haha

My site was browser cached. Trying from a different computer, I got it to work. Of course, hard refreshes don’t work because it’s an immediate 300-type redirect. Clearing all site data in my browser fixed the issue.
