Hi George,

Have you ever heard of Google?  It's amazing the stuff you can find on there, and people won't get annoyed with you for asking the list to do your job for you - which comes across as a bit lazy...

HUP is straightforward, read

Everyone has to start somewhere but I'd suggest this list might not be the best place to ask basic Linux questions.  There are some other really good places which I find very useful when I started out with this stuff is a good one.

          You need to take a Unix 101 course.  You clearly have no idea what
        you're doing.

          If you're editing the "users" file, then you will need to send the
        server a HUP signal.
