I'm running Apache2 and have "automated" my site creation process. However, I'm wondering if there's a way... let me rephrase... There's got to be a way to get Apache to reload VHOSTS.conf without restarting apache. It's not the downtime as the restart time is almost nothing (usually less than 1 second) but work with me here.

Does anybody know how I could go about doing this? What are the possible drawbacks?
