How to effect my configuration

i have a question , when i has edited kong configuration on /etc/kong.conf eg: loglevel. i should use kong restart to effect my new config, but it would lost some connection. how to effect my config like nginx -s reload to avoid this situation, thanks

You can use kong reload, which will perform an nginx -s reload under the hood.

thank you ,but it would not effect some nginx directives on config file. such as i modify log level from notice to info in config file. after i use kong reload ,the nginx log level is still notice.

Please try:

kong prepare
kong reload
