Magento not showing any changes I make in files on server

Hi All

Any changes I make to skin files or layout/template files under app are not been applied to my store.

For example my footer background is purple, If I change this to black in the css file the store does not recognize these changes. Same with the phtml/xml files. If I remove the footer block completely from my page.xml file the footer still appears in my store.

I have tried to clear/disable caches in the magento Admin Panel but something strange seems to be happening here also, it does not give me the pop up box at the top in green that tells me the refresh/disable has happened.

I have just recently upgraded to version 1.1.4

Any ideas greatly appreciated.
