How to get changes to chan_dahdi.conf to take effect

I’m making some modifications to chan_dahdi.conf and I’m using the file found here: as template. It says that some changes cannot be set by a reload. Now I’m assuming reload means issuing “module reload” in the Asterisk CLI; is that correct? If so, how to I get these changes to take effect? Would I simply need to close Asterisk and restart it?

Thanks for the help in advance!

Let me try to rephrase my question:

How do you reload chan_dahdi.conf file after you make changes to it? The template in the link above states that some changes do not take effect after a reload, so how would one go about making these changes take effect. My assumption was to restart Asterisk, but I was looking for confirmation on this.

Thanks in advance!


I think the better way to do that is “/etc/init.d/asterisk stop” than “/etc/init.d/asterisk start” or "asterisk -rx ‘core restart now’ ".

Good lock!
