It seems most apps have a /bin folder with a start script. The Wordpress sites don't have that. My WP site was broken just now, and I searched around but couldn't find a way to restart apache. It's back on now. But how can I do this (if it is possible) in future?

Thanks.

WordPress uses PHP, and our PHP setup uses PHP-CGI by default. This means that each request to your site is handled by a single PHP-CGI process that handles the request and then ends. So, in effect, your WordPress app starts and stops with every request, and there's nothing to restart.

Hope that helps!
