Technically, yes. :-)

If you are using CGI, you don't need a re-start, as the CGI is a new
process each time, and loads php.ini on each page hit.

If you are using Apache, in theory, you'd only need to re-start
Apache, as that reloads the php.ini, or maybe even send it some kind
of signal to re-load its configuration files, which *might* include

If you are using FCGI, I presume you'd only need to re-start FCGI, as
that will re-load the php.ini there.

If you are using IIS, you'll have to restart every 24 hours anyway, so
what's it matter?

However, Windows being Windows, there might be caching of the files by
the OS which has to be cleared out, or some other weird thing going
on, so just reboot anyway, cuz it's Windows.

Know what I want?
I want you to buy a CD from some indie artist.
Yeah, I get a buck. So?
