My Apache server is not refreshing content???


Hey all. I am certain this is something in apache server, but I cannot figure it out. I have PHP bulletin board installed and any time a new message is posted it doesn't show up in the forum unless you hit your ctrl F5 button....to do a refresh from the server. Any ideas why any time there is a page change made apache doesn't server up the new page...??? There has got to be something I'm missing..

THanks in advance.

I know it's wierd...but I tried mozilla latest build with default settings and IE6....pretty sure this is a problem with apache or phpBB. I just don't know where or why.

set your browser on every time I view the page and see if it changes

Dave....try going to a post on the page. Then reply to the post, and before it redirects you to view "your post", click on the forum index. Then go back into the message you just replied to, and your reply will not show up, nor will it show it as a count on the forum index. It will always show you what it looks like the 1st time you visited it unless you force a refresh from the server.


By default web servers do not behave this way.

Yeah, I have not configured the email server yet, but if you look, it will still save your reply. But you wont see it until you do a "hard" refresh from the server.
hit CTRL F5 in your browser

but a refresh from the server is the only way to see the change, it will not change on your local machine

I'll try it.

YEah.....this is really odd. I've never seen this happen on any other previous installs of apache or IIS I have ever done. Just never encountered this before.

I see what your saying

It's not anything to do with apache

you do not have your mail server working and the script is failing at that point.

If you fix that you will see that it gives you links to the index and the post you made. After a few seconds it will bring you to your post. Which refreshes the page


Fix the mail server and it will be ok

oh geez......sorry to bug you about that. I'll try it now.

Any recommendations on an easy to configure email server that supports multiple domains? I was thinking courier....

Thanks again
