  1. I have added this “echo $dateModel->gmtDate();” in Jquery variable but If I page refresh that Time show old. See below

    I have set “$currentDate=Date(“m/d/y h:i:s A”, strtotime($gmtDate));” in page.
    when i page open $currentDate is “02/07/19 09:15:58 AM”.
    After 5 mins I have page refresh $currentDate should be “02/07/19 09:20:58 AM”. but it show “02/07/19 09:15:58 AM”.
    If I cache clear that its work fine.

    Can you please tell me why this happen? And how to resolve it?
