How to stop cache of web pages
Posted on 2005-04-24
I had problems with a Flash application that was communicating with a sever App. that I wrote in Perl.
PC a) worked OK, the flash app (a game) always received info from the server app.
PC b) went into a loop, always seeming to get the same info from the server.
Eventually I realised that PC a) had IE set to check for newer versions of a page every time, PC b) was set to check automatically. When I changed PC b) to check every page the flash app. worked.
I cannot ensure that everyone using my Flash program will have this setting, how do I change (presumably my server app.) to make sure the page data is never cached?
The server app communicates via http, data from the Flash app is sent as 'get' parameters. Data is sent back from the server as a text/html page.
