Re: Correct way to HUP?

Hello Jeremy,

HUPing is a correct way to add new local domains to qmail-send. I've tried
it without the control/locals: qmail-sql reads it from the database and that
works fine. But with that file, qmail dumps the errors you reported. I see 
you already found one problem in the code: it stated locals.test in stead of
locals. That was fixed in 0.21 too, but doesn't solve your problem. I'll
look further at this one but for now, i would advise to remove control/locals
or restart qmail-send instead of HUPing.

Kind regards,
Michael Devogelaere.
