Cache problem

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to overwrite a client's cache file? Suppose I have a file called "recent.pdf" and replace it daily., but keep the same name. When someone goes to the site, the browser calls up the cached version (yesterday's) instead of the newer one. Short of redesigning things, is there a quick fix to overwrite the file from the same originating site with the same name? Would a cookie do it? Thanks.
