This can sometimes help resolve access problems for resources that recently updated their URL. Browsers will sometimes hold onto the old URL - this is usually done as a convenience so the website will load faster the next time you visit it. However, this can cause issues if the resource's URL has been recently updated. Clearing your cache will get rid of the outdated information and allow your browser to process the new information successfully.
Go Incognito (Private Browsing)
If you are not comfortable with clearing your browser's cache, private browsing can be a secondary option. Once in a private browsing window, proceed with accessing content like normal. Please note that this is only a temporary fix compared to actually clearing your browser's cache.
This can resolve log-in problems when trying to authenticate through EZproxy. If you are still experiencing problems when trying to login-in, contact IT Solutions.
