Php artisan cache:clear not working for me

october keeps loading the old javascript, even though I run the cache:clear command, is there another command I am missing? here is how I load the js in the theme

<script src="{{ 'assets/js/main.js'|theme }}"></script>

Make sure you clear the browser cache too, the combiner uses etags in addition to the local cache.

However, the HTML you’ve provided does not run through the combiner at all.

I do, I run php artisan cache:clear, and clear browser cache, but still nothing, Im having to put javascript in the html, because if I load it from assets it keeps bringing up the cached js files, is there anything else I havent tried?
