I am testing my app on a shared host account on Site5. The app is in development mode and all changes for the most part take place immediately. The only exception are the classes that I have developed and placed in my lib/ directory. I can make a change to my class, run my app, have it behave in the previous manner, go to bed, come back the next morning, and the changes will have taken effect. How do I prevent the server (Apache in this case) from caching my lib/ directory? TIA.

Hi Jim > How do I prevent the server (Apache in this case) from caching my lib/ > directory? I've faced the same problem too, apparently using "requre_dependency 'my_lib'" can fix this if you put that in the controller/model that it's used from. It's supposed to force a reload each time the file is reloaded and parsed. That being said, I've never used it, so i might be talking crap. It might be a bit nicer on the Site5 mob if you do your dev work on your local machine and deploy it only when you're ready to roll, though. Have a shot, hope it helps. Dan.
