Maybe I'm misunderstanding but why do you need server side support for this?

The basic way of doing this is to add a <meta> tag to your HTML like this:

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="60;url=URL_OF_YOUR_PAGE_GOES_HERE" />

The 60 above is the number of seconds until refresh. Replace it with the
proper place.

An alternative solution is a bit of Javascript that sets a timer and forces
the refresh when it expires. You can even just refresh the parts of the
page you need, with an AJAX request.

Maybe I misunderstood what you want to do, but I see no reason to do this
server side on your explanation.
