How to fix Chromium Kiosk still displaying old page after reboot


You are running a Chromium Kiosk application on an embedded computer (like a Raspberry Pi) using a command like

chromium-browser --noerrdialogs --disable-infobars --kiosk http://localhost

but when you update the webpage, Chromium still displays the old page even after a reboot.


Disable Chromium’s cache by adding

--disk-cache-dir=/dev/null --disk-cache-size=1

to the command (which is typically found in /etc/xdg/openbox/autostart). The full command will look like this:

chromium-browser --noerrdialogs --disable-infobars --disk-cache-dir=/dev/null --disk-cache-size=1 --kiosk http://localhost
