Meta tag redirection stuck in browser cache
I recently started working with a client with an index.html file with this in my head:
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="1; url=http://example.com/">
I removed this file and added my own index.php file, but mine is completely ignored because the redirect html page seems to be cached by the browser. I know how to get rid of this for me, but is there a way to make the redirect not show up? This will be in many user caches, as well as mine.
For the record, I don't configure my redirects this way due to this exact issue. I've been dealing with someone else's code for a long time.
So, am I lucky until the user caches are cleared or expire? Or can I do something, perhaps with .htaccess, to fix this issue?
WordPress will eventually be used in this project.
