Can I make the CDN request files from my server if they dont exist?

Posted December 3, 2021 79 views

I have some auto generated files, right now they are generated on the fly, but would like to move them to the cdn.

Is it possible to have the CDN request the file from my server if it hasn’t been uploaded there yet (and then cache the generated file so it can serve that next time)?

Hi there,

I believe that this would depend on the CDN provider, but yes, most CDN providers like Cloudflare would do this automatically.

If you are referring to the DigitalOcean Spaces CDN, this would also be the case.

Hope that this helps!
