Description

Hi there,

I'm running lighttpd 1.4.16, a very good software. Is it possible to reload the lighttpd configuration without stopping and starting lighttpd process ?
like kill -HUP <PID OF LIGHTTPD> ?

It's a very useful option to not cut current session when we need to change some options in the lighttpd.conf...

This feature has been implemented: See Lighty's Angel

If you start lighty with lighttpd-angel, it behaves as described. It's worth documenting here (or anywhere else likely to come up on google) since I spent a frustrating time sending SIGHUP to lighttpd with no success before I realized that there are two binaries and I was using the wrong one.

SIGHUP to lighttpd-angel reloads the configuration.

This change was fulfilled by Changeset 1981 and can be marked complete.
