[mrtg] configmaker question

I added the runasdaemon and the switch is visible.

The problem I am having is, some ports on an old switch had important phone switch stuff on it by interface, so I edited this cfg file and added the new interfaces which are on the new switch.  This isn't working. That page is not working now so I went back to the old cfg file. Can a cfg file be edited or will I have to re create the entire cfg file for that system?

cfg_l is a lockfile, and only shows up with an instance of mrtg is running.

How are you calling this new file?  Did you Include: it into a master
mrtg.cfg file?   You would only see the lockfile on the master.

Or are you running a separate instance of mrtg?  From cron or from startup?
Do your other files have RunAsDaemon: yes in them?
