Subject RE: [users@httpd] apache restart and LoadModule php4_module modules/
Date Tue, 09 Mar 2004 13:25:37 GMT
Plain text please...

If you look inside apachectl (it's only a shell-script...) you'll see
that restart does a "kill -HUP". This is the hangup signal (SIGHUP)
which forces a daemon to reread its config file.

I don't think this causes the daemon to reload dynamic modules (I know
for a fact that it doesn't cause apache to reload SSL certs, for
example). I would recommend a full stop then start.

Of course, you could find this out fairly quickly by experiment - then
post back your results and let us all know.
