    To refresh your site's favicon you can force browsers to download a new version using the link tag and a querystring on your filename.
    Code:
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://www.yoursite.com/favicon.ico?v=2" />

    Where's the public_html? I'm not sure if it's in the ACP or the FTP and where within them x.x

    Hello @Sutekh ! Sometimes it could be labelled as htdocs, this is where you uploaded your XenForo files.

    htdocs doesn't show up in FTP or ACP for me.

    You could already be in it, on most webhost control panels (cPanel, Interworx etc) they have an option where you can create an FTP account in a specific directory. Would you be able to provide a picture of what you're looking at?

    So htdocs/Public_html is where you put your site files. It's basically the root of your site. So you upload your favicon where your site files are

    For some reason the favcon has yet to change from the previous one, any reasons why?

    I followed the steps to make the favcon, found the favcon in the ftp, replaced it, cleared cache and waited 1-2 days.
