thanks andy, that pushes my understanding a step along the right path.
still unclear about WHERE any cache would be.
i ran "netstat -plnt" (DO support suggestion) on the console, and the
results don't mention varnish or server cache as far as i can tell.
the old server guy did write back to say he simply ran the standard DO
'one click' install for a droplet setup, and doesn't think he did
anything regarding server caches. DO say they don't setup server
caches 'by default'. so perhaps it IS in the WP setup, but i can't
find anything that's obviously a 'cache' system (but i might trash
that goDaddy mu-plugin folder anyway - I don't think that will be
helping anything now we're on DO).
