hi all

does anybody know if it is possible to execute code in the master process of a running nginx by writing an nginx module. what i want to do is to somehow  notify the master process from a worker proces (e.g. by changing some state in shared memory) and then execute code with the master process' user.

actually what i want to do is to force a config reload, so i have to signal the master, but the worker does not have the permission to do so.

thanks in advance, bernd
