By default Prosody does not reload modules at runtime unless instructed to via one of its admin interfaces. However sometimes you want to easily reload a module to apply new settings when the config changes.

mod_reload_modules will reload a set list of modules every time Prosody reloads its config (e.g. on SIGHUP).


Add “reload_modules” to modules_enabled. Then the list of modules to reload using the ‘reload_modules’ option in your config like so:

reload_modules = { "groups", "tls" }

This would reload mod_groups and mod_tls whenever the config is reloaded. Note that on many systems this will be at least daily, due to logrotate.
