Yes, you can make Apache reload a config file without restarting. You 
must send it a SIGHUP:

kill -HUP `cat /var/run/`

If you execute this as nobody, I believe it will work, but I haven't 
tested it.

Also, I believe Apache will restart when given a "kill -1". If the above 
suggestions works, so will this.

Happy hacking.
