It may be necessary to occasionally restart your Virtual Private Server's Apache Web Server. For example, you may wish to restart after making web server configuration additions or modifications, or to correct any problems the web server may be experiencing.

Normally, your Virtual Private Server Apache Web Server is automatically restarted every time you edit and save your web server configuration file (~/www/conf/httpd.conf). However, if you need to manually restart your web server, it is easily done. Simply connect to your Virtual Private Server via Telnet or SSH and execute the following command:

% restart_apache

All active web server processes will be killed, and new web server processes will be started.
