Try stopping and restarting the webserver.  If that doesn't work, then
definitely follow Jacob's excellent suggestion, and THEN restart the
webserver again.  One thing I forgot to mention was that after I changed

system and wanted to make sure everything still worked after a cold
boot.  That had the effect of stopping and restarting apache.
