# How to restart ipsec on renew of certificate

• Hi,

I try to find the way to restart my ipsec on renewal of the certificate. I find the action list but cannot find the right info to put in the command text field.

Any idea on how to to it ?

Regards,
Jonathan

• One of these should work:

1. Method = Restart Local Service, Command = `ipsec` (This may be enough to refresh the IPsec config, but it's not a full restart)
2. Method = PHP Command, Command = `ipsec_configure(true)` (This may fail since it may not have the right required libraries)
3. Method = Shell Command, Command = `/usr/local/sbin/pfSsh.php playback restartipsec` (This may fail since the ACME script which starts the command is PHP, and launching pfSsh.php from within PHP doesn't always work)
4. Method = PHP Command, Command = `file_get_contents("/etc/phpshellsessions/restartipsec")` (If the shell command fails, this should work instead)
