Querried mirror status wrong


#1

Hi,
when querrying the mirror status on http://wiki.ros.org/Mirrors with Chromium, I always get 2017-10-21 12:13 for the Freiburg mirror. However, when opening http://wiki.ros.org.ros.informatik.uni-freiburg.de/wikidump.timestamp directly, I get the correct state (2018-01-13 12:13). This only happens with Chromium, Firefox handles everything fine. It seems to be a caching issue. Is there a way to fix this problem?
Best, Andi

I’ve run into this before that chromium is caching the timestamp file. Reload and force reload aren’t enough to clear that file from the cache because they timestamp files are loaded via javascript.

You can use the debug console to clear the file from the browser cache.

To do this, load the page with the debug console open. Then click on the dynamic load and then check the status. And on the network console you can clear the browser’s cached version.

That works for me, thanks for the quick response!
