I have changed my favicon.ico on my test website, however the old favicon.ico is still displayed. I cannot figure this out despite reading the docs and several posts & threads.

I uploaded the favicon.ico which replaced the old favicon.ico. I then activated my virtual environment and ran the command: pythonX2.7 manage.py collectstatic which then overwrote the existing files. I then restarted the server, but I am still seeing the old favicon.ico.

I am a noob, so I may have missed something, but I am hoping that someone can point out what I may not have done.

The icon I see is a green circle with white "u"; is this the new icon or the old one?

Note that browsers often cache favicons and this is why we're asking. What does the new one look like?

The new favicon has a blue background with a white Z.

I have cleared the cache of the browser, but I continue to see the old green favicon.

Try this:

  1. Go to http://domain.com/favicon.ico
  2. Once it has loaded, do a hard refresh.
  3. Restart your browser.

Hope that helps!
