No PPP Stats in History Table of MongoDB

We're not running 1.1, so it's definitely a custom bit that Zaid put in 
for us.

I found what I was looking for in /opt/genieacs/config/parameters.json.  
I added
the WANPPPConnection variants of the WANIPConnection params that Zaid 
had in there.

Now I need to know how to reload GenieACS so that it reads my config 
changes.  I
realizes that is a very basic thing, but I cannot find a simple clear 
answer even after
LOTS of googling around and reading the Wiki.

If you know the command to reload or restart GenieACS, please let me
