PHP file modifications and Restarting the Web Server

I am working with Omeka and trying to apply some customizations to PHP files and am curious if I can restart the Web Server in order to see the changes?

What is the process for this?

Hi Kent,

Restarting the server isn’t possible by end users but should also never be necessary for changes to take effect. If you’re not getting the desired result it’s more likely that something is not configured properly rather than restarting being necessary. If you want to send more details I’m happy to troubleshoot that for you (we’re also available via support ticket at if you prefer to not share certain information in a public forum).
