I'm in Production mode. I like to change some styles in my website, so i edited .less

for example:


I used "flush Magento cache" from backend and run


still my modified files not updated. What can I use to solve this problem?

  • Firstly check do you have your changes in generated files if not then change it developer mode and rm the generated files in pub/stati then deploy it and I guess it will work from now Jun 14, 2019 at 7:42
  • After changed to developer mode i used setup:upgrade, then only it's work fine.

you should never edit files on your prod-system! you should fix your deployment process if you have to do that!

you need to delete all files in var/view_preprocessed and run bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy to recompile the less.
