Since I installed apache from source and not an RPM I do not have an rc
file that the service command would use. I start apache in the rc.local
file. -USR1 should be the 'NICE' way to reload the configuration files
as per the apache documentation and has worked for many versions. Its
just with PHP 4.2.3 that it stops working.

I don't know why the USR1 signal appears to have changed, but on RH the 
"nice" way of restarting apache is "service httpd restart". Does this
