Using profile documents in a web application

A very quick tip for the non-admins out there today.

I am looking after an app which uses lots of profile documents on the web. It's not the way I would choose to do things because whenever you change the configuration in a profile document it takes ages (up to half an hour) for the change to be consistently available over HTTP.

To get around that I found a new server console command which makes any change take effect immediately...

tell http clearcaches

It was new for me anyway, hopefully it will help someone else out.
