frustrated by ISP's cache

 [1/2] from: gchiu::compkarori::co::nz at: 16-Nov-2002 18:08

I'm trying to upload patches to my website to test a patch utility, but after I access the file once, my ISP caches the file, and so even if I upload it modified shortly afterwards, I only get my ISP's cached version. This is so frustrating :( I can add a random string after a ? tacked on to the request, and this stops the caching but this is bit of a hack. What do others do? I think for a clean solution, I'm going to have to write a short rebol script to serve up the file I need ... -- Graham Chiu

This is what I've done now. I uploaded my patch files into a password protected directory. HTTP specifies that directories protected by basic authentication must not be cached, and it looks like my ISP's cache software is respecting that. When I'm done testing, I can just remove the authentication .. or just leave it in place as I have done. -- Graham Chiu
