[smokeping-users] fcgid and config changes

Literally any modification to the config file that affects the web interface html content, including but not limited to adding or removing new items being monitored by smokeping. The issue is not what's being modified but I think the fact that the old cgi process never dies and continues using the old config file until.... I don't know when. I've always had to kill the process or restart Apache which also ends the process to make the web interface reflect the current configuration file. I'm talking specifically about the web interface and not the daemon. There is no problem with that piece. I just never had this issue with SpeedyCGI. Perhaps I have something configured wrong.

What "changes" are we talking about?

I've noticed in the newer versions of smokeping using fgcid, that any config changes aren't reflected in the web interface until the existing process is ended and a new one spawned. Is it just expected that after each change you will kill the old process to get the web interface to reflect the changes that the daemon is already aware of? Is the smokeping supposed to kill the old web process on reload? I never had this issue with SpeedyCGI in 2.4.2 and earlier.
