How to refresh a page using PHP at regularly occurring intervals?

in PHP on February 21, 2020

I use the following:


header("Refresh:0");

It refreshes the current page after some code executes(or not, your choice)

Also, if you need to redirect it to another page, we can add the target page as following:


header("Refresh:0; url=another_page.php");

It is not advisable to use it unless there is no other option as that 0 will continuously call server and update your local cache as well. If you use 3-4, it will refresh the page every 3-4 seconds.

Many times, if you want to use it with JavaScript alert, it doesn't work or the alert doesn't show up properly. Alternately, we can use JavaScript method as well, like:


location.reload()

The reload() method is used to reload the current document. The reload() method does the same as the reload button in your browser.
