Basically what needs to happen when you post something is your browser needs to go to the thread and refresh that page

this happens when you post

by clicking back on the index you are bypassing the page refresh in the code and need to do it manually

look at your log files in /var/log/httpd/

use tail -f /var/log/htpd/access_log



when your browser requests something you will see it


the server does not just send stuff out to you your browser needs to ask for it

by opening the pages your browser is running scripts that tell it to refresh

Well...if it continues to function in this way it is wrong. Take this board for instance, when you post a message in a forum, or reply to the message, you can go back to the forum index and see that "rosko" or "DavidPhillips" was the last user to post a message in the forum, WITHOUT having to hit CTRL F5 on either of my browsers. Same goes for any other forum I have been to. But mine doesn't function that way. I'll try setting up the email server and hopefully that will cure the problem.

well actually I was having a heck of a time here earlier with konquerer with cache turned on I was having to refresh everything

I turned the cache off and it's fine


Mozilla does not have the same problem

It's not the server, it anything it's phpbb is not forcing a page refresh in some cases where it should

ever try one of those speed tests. Try one and then use your browsers back and forward buttons and see how fast it is


It's just not what webservers do. It's the webpage and the browser.

Are you using squid?

do you have the default Browser directives in your config file

BrowserMatch "Mozilla/2" nokeepalive
BrowserMatch "MSIE 4\.0b2;" nokeepalive downgrade-1.0 force-response-1.0
BrowserMatch "RealPlayer 4\.0" force-response-1.0
BrowserMatch "Java/1\.0" force-response-1.0
BrowserMatch "JDK/1\.0" force-response-1.0
BrowserMatch "Microsoft Data Access Internet Publishing Provider" redirect-carefully
BrowserMatch "^WebDrive" redirect-carefully



could be some others if you have issues with certain browsers

Do you think I should use this....and put my domains in the config file for nocache???

# To enable the cache as well, edit and uncomment the following lines:
# (no cacheing without CacheRoot)
#
#CacheRoot "/etc/httpd/proxy"
#CacheSize 5
#CacheGcInterval 4
#CacheMaxExpire 24
#CacheLastModifiedFactor 0.1
#CacheDefaultExpire 1
#NoCache a-domain.com another-domain.edu joes.garage-sale.com


I'm assuming by default it's nocache anyway, just thought I'd ask.

it looks like your not using the proxy, so it should not make a difference

It just seems like it's working correctly from here

Dave, I'm not sure how it's working right for you. I had another user test this and he said the same thing you did....basically the php pages are not updating the content. I can post a new message, then logout of the browser, and go back in and I never see the message until I refresh. On any other forum this works right, on mine it doesn't. I'm wondering if I install the forum incorrectly, aside from the email server portion.

So if I have this correct, you think installing my mail server will cure the issue possibly? I tried changing my cache settings in mozilla and IE 6, but they react the same way......not updating the DB info such as new posts



Oh, and what problems might I have with squid on? I know you mentioned that earlier..

I'm just wondering if you can use squid logs to see if it's getting a request or not

I think you will see it's not sending a request to the server, so it is most likely the forum software.

the other thing about squid is that it may be caching the pages and storing them. so your browser may be getting the old page from squid

Have you seen this software anywhere else


It seems like the pages would have something to tell a browser not to cache it

I'm installing a brand new copy on a different domain, gonna create a new database and see how it goes. I'll keep you posted. I just checked and I don't have squid running, it's installed but not running.
