You can do it with PHP:

header("Refresh:0");

It refreshes your current page, and if you need to redirect it to another page, use following:

header("Refresh:0; url=page2.php");

In PHP you can use:

$page = $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'];
$sec = "10";
header("Refresh: $sec; url=$page");

Or just use JavaScript's window.location.reload().

You sure can refresh a page periodically using PHP:

<?php
    header("refresh: 3;");
?>

This will refresh the page every three seconds.
