You can also use JavaScript to refresh the page automatically after a given time period. Following is the example which would refresh this page after every 5 seconds. You can change this time as per your requirement.

<html>
<head>
<script type="text/JavaScript">
<!--
function AutoRefresh( t ) {
	setTimeout("location.reload(true);", t);
}
//   -->
</script>
</head>
<body onload="JavaScript:AutoRefresh(5000);">
<p>This page will refresh every 5 seconds.</p>
</body>
</html>

Here setTimeout() is a built-in JavaScript function which can be used to execute another function after a given time interval.
