Regarding what I am doing, I get an email from a very small number of people to do an update on my local host, I do the update on my localhost, I display the pages I want to show on the webhosting site, I save them in google chrome by doing this (right click, save as, webpage complete), then I put the pages on the webhost machine where they can see the updates. If I get too busy and I start making enough money to pay for the VPS then I put the software on a VPS and I have them do the updates.
Regarding the question I have, I came up with a simple google search "how to stop web page caching". If found the page below.http://www.htmlgoodies.com/beyond/refer ... he-Huh.htm
He mentioned two of the commands I was using the first time around and explained why they do not work.
He seems to have researched it fairly well so I am going to try this for a few days to see if it ever fails.
I also found the chrome://cache/ command to see what pages are in google chrome cache and I found this webpage which explains how to clear cache without clearing other stuff.http://superuser.com/questions/278948/c ... -in-chrome
By doing this I can more quickly determine if the change worked rather than waiting a few days.
Also this worked well to clear the cache of the pages for my webiste so I can see if they are getting in cache now by using the above mentioned chrome://cache/ commandHttp://superuser.com/questions/278948/c ... -in-chrome
Open up a page on the website you want to clear the pages for.
in google chrome just left of the URL box click on the "reload page" button but hold it until you see a little menu of three or so items.
From the popup list, choose "Empty Cache and Hard Reload".
Not sure this clears the cache for the entire domain. But probably satisfies 90% of the use cases of people that visit this SE question.
Note: In some cases this will NOT open the popup list. This is because the page isn't cached at that time, so the menu is not invoked.These instructions from Google actually worked for clearing the pages from google chrome cache so I can test the new html code:
On your browser toolbar, click More More.
Point to More tools, and then click Clear browsing data.
In the "Clear browsing data" box, click the checkboxes for Cookies and other site and plug-in data and Cached images and files.
Use the menu at the top to select the amount of data that you want to delete. Choose beginning of time to delete everything.
Click Clear browsing data.
This has a lot of info.http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4954 ... l-browsers
