View Full Version : Force the client to fetch the files from server

14 Jul 2010, 10:40 PM

We are working on project using extjs and and we need to frequently update the ext files. Even if after uploding the files to server its takes a lot time to reflect. Some times pressing Ctrl+F5 resolves the issue but some times it just shows the old files.

I have searched some forums and found that passing a version number while calling the js file may resolve the issue,
but its not practical for us, as we have a number of PHP file and js files .So its not practical to go through all the files and change the linking part.

Another solution that i have found is ton include following PHP coding

header("Pragma: no-cache");
header("Cache: no-cahce");
?>Is there any other ways to resolve this issue.

Our server automatically uses ETags to 'version' the files. This works well for everything but stylesheets.

For stylesheets you'll have to use something like:

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="../../resources/css/ext-all.css?version=123" />
