Hello experts

We have a .txt file on our webserver that is refreshed every 20 sec for aprox 3 or 4 hours. After that the file is no longer updated. When the user clicks on the link it will open that .txt file however to get the latest update the user will need to refresh the browser. Around 90% of our users will be using cell phones or tablets.

Is there a PHP / Jquery/ javascript or any easy solution to get this done?
