Refresh motd without restarting server?

Is it possible to have the server reload motd without restarting the server?

All kill - numbers just restart the server (including -9 which is a bug).

well you could wait til the map changes.

If that worked than I wouldn't need to refresh!

The server loads the motd.txt and never looks at it again.

funny, mine does. i guess your server is unique?
ummm, why would you need to refresh the motd.txt?

if you had constantly changing content, why not have the motd.txt refer to a web page, then you can change content without having to restart your server.

He's probably just trying to test out his motd and get it to the way he wants it.

I was wondering the same thing.

If you kill the srcds_i486, srcds_i686 or srcds_amd the server is restarting because srcds_run is running in a loop and when the actual serverproces dies, srcds_run will restart it.
Btw I've seen better implementations of a script running in a loop to restart the server when it crashes. Now you have to kill both tasks to really stop the server.
