Restarting a plugin from command line?


I see there’s a way to restart a plugin from GUI, without restarting the whole server. I’d like to do the same thing from the command line, to restart a badly working plugin periodically from a cron job. Is there a command that would make it possible?

(the plugin is Kraken, and Spectrum2 didn’t really work for me)

If someone else is struggling with this too, I’ve found a way: touch $openfire/plugins/$plugin.jar changes the mtime of a JAR file and makes plugin watcher reload this plugin.

Is it pretty? No. Does it work? Absolutely.

Nice :slight_smile: Thanks for sharing
