Either you tell the user that have to restart the server in order to have
the new config file loaded or you ask for a restart. In any case the user
need to know that an action is required (automatically or not).


PS the proper list for apache questions is debian-apache@lists.debian.org

<user> fajita: step one
<fajita> Whatever the problem, step one is always to look in the error log.
<user> fajita: step two
<fajita> When in danger or in doubt, step two is to scream and shout.
