    There is no need to force the reload, a simple sudo apache2ctl restart is enough

    apache2ctl restart will restart your entire apache, whereas the reload will only reload the config for apache.

    what the /etc/init.d/apache2 scripts does is call the apache2ctl function, but inside a nice wrapper. always prefer to handle your services through the services. so if you really need a restart to /etc/init.d/apache2 restart.

    but if you can, go with the reload …

    Thanks mate. That was solving my problem.
    Maybe also good to know it’s for SUSE Linux.

Did I get this wrong? Let me know!
