This command completely restarts services. This command is usually unnecessary, as a reload will load most configuration file changes and apply them immediately. A few changes however cannot be applied in this way. In such case, a restart can be used. Always try a reload before a restart, because any configuration file errors will be caught in the reload command and can be fixed. Configuration file errors will always prevent a successful restart of services. Note that this is fairly noisy, and anyone in a registered channel that has ChanServ or a BotServ bot present will be aware of the restart.
This command accepts 0 arguments. To restart services, issue the following command:
/msg OperServ restart
