Curious on couple commands

Hello, just got asterisk@home installed, not to bad if u have an older computer…

Anyways, im doing the dial plan with some sip softphones…
I have to keep rebooting it after I write changes to zaptel.conf and sip.conf

What is an easy way to stop and restart these?


for changes to sip.conf, a “sip reload” at the CLI will usually suffice. for zaptel changes i generally unload Asterisk, then zaptel (and wanrouter in my case) then reload. there should be no need to reboot the server itself, and you could probably get away with just an Asterisk reload.

in A@H you’ll probably be able to do a “amportal restart” at the command prompt, this will unload Asterisk, FOP and Zaptel, then reload them.
