Reload the config file using SIGHUP

(written by lawrence krubner, however indented passages are often quotes). You can contact lawrence at:, or follow me on Twitter.

Curious about this:

First, on the server side, you have to change max_matches settings in sphinx.conf, and restart the searchd. (With 0.9.9 and above, you can simply reload the config file using SIGHUP.)

I discovered this article, Reload That Config File.
