I'm a new user of QGIS. I have a problem trying to update layers from a database. I have a MySQL database in a server that I add as a layer (or more than one, depends on the project) with no problem. That database changes each five minutes, and I want to update the associate/s layer/s. Now, I push the refresh buttom, but I guess that this could be done automatically, without my interference, as a programmed routine or plugin. Any have tried it? Do you know how to achieve it? Thanks in advance! Laura
