Cant see changes to HTML or CSS code immediately show up on your website? Here’s how to easily turn off browser caching during web-development.
Some hosting companies enforce caching for the good of their users — but all that’s needed is to add this little snippet to .htaccess to control (in this case disable) web page caching across all browsers for changes to reflect immediately.
# DISABLE CACHING <IfModule mod_headers.c> Header set Cache-Control "no-cache, no-store, must-revalidate" Header set Pragma "no-cache" Header set Expires 0 </IfModule>
Then hit on that refresh + shift button and Voila!
…htaccess? Have a look under your public_html folder and make sure that you can see invisible files. For example, cPanel’s file manager has a setting for that.
Comments, questions, worries?
