  • Cache problem between different CD


    I created a few CD with our registered version of Flying Ant CD Server and Zoom Search.

    When I swap from a CD to the other (between French and English for example), the content of the last Cd is always shown instead of the inserted CD!
    I always have to hit Ctrl-F5 to refresh the content and see the actual one...
    This is a big problem for someone surfing the CDs I,ll be creating!

    How can I make sure the content is refreshed all the time? Anyone else have tried this?

    I have tried to include code that force refresh but it doesn't seem to work. It doesn't do that if I browse the CD without activating the Flying Ant server.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Hi Kevin.

    Getting browsers to refresh a URL reliably can be tricky. What often may work on one browser may not work on another.

    However, one way to likely avoid the issue is to change the open_url (in your flyingant.conf file) to be different from CD to CD.

    You can do this without renaming the home page file, you can simply add some HTTP GET parameters at the end of the URL (which will be ignored anyway).

    For example, if your current open_url setting is:


    You can change this so that the English CD has:


    And the French CD has:


    The parameter itself is actually ignored by the web page, but it enforces the browser to attempt a refresh because the URL is different. Hope that helps.
