Cakephp how to avoid browser page caching

Posted on: February 21, 2008

Upto cakephp 1.1.19.x there is no builtin function for this so,One solution is

Send the below headers before render a view

header(“pragma: no-cache”);
header(“Cache-Control: no-cache, must-revalidate”);
header(“Expires: Mon, 26 Jul 1997 05:00:00 GMT”); // Date in the past

you can place the above code in the function beforeRender or layout file.

Cakephp 1.2.x contains a function Controller::disableCache() this will avoid the browser page caching by sending the corresponding headers.

You can apply this to entair pages by defining the beforeRender function inside app_controller

* beforeRender() Called after the controller action is run, but before the view is rendered
function beforeRender() {

header(“Cache-Control: no-store, no-cache, must-revalidate, post-check=0, pre-check=0”); // // HTTP/1.1
header(“Pragma: no-cache”);
header(“Expires: Mon, 17 Dec 2007 00:00:00 GMT”); // Date in the past


Or you can specify these headers in default.thtml layout between header tags
