Restart the haproxy service when changing the configuration

#1

Hi, I am running haproxy as loadbalancer.HAProxy configuration is saved in etc/haproxy/haproxy.cfg. Whenever i change the the configuration file, i am restarting the haproxy service to apply the configuration changes.Without restarting the service the changes are not getting applied.Is there any other way to apply the configuration without restart haproxy service.

“service haproxy reload” instead of restart should do the trick :wink:
