in reply to restart apache web server from CGI script

I'd create a batchfile / bash-script that performs the action as the proper user in the os-specific language, and then `` or qx, perlfunc:system or perlfunc:exec that script.
But i'm not keen on having a cgi-script call a apache restart.
I'd use Webmin, (running on windows as well i see)!, it's running it's own webservice.
