WordPress isn’t reflecting changes I make to a specific file via FTP

Question

Hello, I’m new to WordPress so please let me know if there’s any vital information I’ve left out.

I’ve just migrated from my localhost to online: there were a few bumps but after fixing some paths everything seems to be working fine. Except for the search results page (and I think I know why).

I wanted more search results to show up, so in Settings > Reading I updated the number of posts to display on one page. However, now when I update search.php, the changes aren’t reflected on the live site. My uninformed theory is that because I changed a setting via the wp-admin panel it somehow cached a current version of my search.php and is using that instead of the file I’m updating and reuploading.

I know this is probably incorrect, but I have no idea why changes I make to the file aren’t being reflected. It is the only page I’m having this issue with, changes I make to other files are displayed instantly.
