I am using upstart on OEL 6, an old version 0.6.5.
I created a conf file to start/stop mysql with a pre-stop section and respawn. Now when I want to change the conf file, I cannot get it re-read because each time I stop mysql it gets re-started and the conf file changes are only re-read when the job stops!
I have seen on a upstart bug list that this behaviour changes in latter releases, so that a respawn does not happen when the goal is to stop.
So what can I do now, reboot the machine?
Thanks for any suggestions.
