Manually Change Theme (1 post)

    I've had a search, but can't seem to find what I'm looking for. This black Friday, I'd like to change the theme of my site, but won't be able to do it automatically. I have a cron job setup to do this for me, but can't seem to change it via mysql.

    I know its in option_id, and rows 49 and 50, I've changed these to a name of a theme (the folder name) but when I refresh the page in either FireFox or Internet Explorer, I get the old theme.

    Could it have anything to do with the WP-Cache, which I've got enabled just for the sake of it, and if so, can I still keep it and have my theme change?

    If I go in through the control panel, it works fine, but when I change it directly in mysql, it still serves a cached page.

    Thanks in advance,
