Sébastien,

The message about the signal process is only the beginning of the process..
You are interested in messages like the following:

> 2024/03/26 13:36:36 [notice] 723#723: signal 1 (SIGHUP) received from
> 69064, reconfiguring
> 2024/03/26 13:36:36 [notice] 723#723: reconfiguring
> 2024/03/26 13:36:36 [notice] 723#723: using the "epoll" event method
> 2024/03/26 13:36:36 [notice] 723#723: start worker processes
> 2024/03/26 13:36:36 [notice] 723#723: start worker process 69065
> 2024/03/26 13:36:36 [notice] 723#723: start worker process 69066
> 2024/03/26 13:36:36 [notice] 723#723: start cache manager process 69067
> 2024/03/26 13:36:36 [notice] 61903#61903: gracefully shutting down
> 2024/03/26 13:36:36 [notice] 61905#61905: exiting
> 2024/03/26 13:36:36 [notice] 61903#61903: exiting
> 2024/03/26 13:36:36 [notice] 61904#61904: gracefully shutting down
> 2024/03/26 13:36:36 [notice] 61904#61904: exiting
> 2024/03/26 13:36:36 [notice] 61903#61903: exit

Note the 'gracefully shutting down' and 'exiting' message from workers.
Also the 'start' and 'reconfiguring' messages from the master process.
There should be a similar sequence somewhere in your logs.
Having these logs may help explaining what happens on a reload.

Kind regards,
Igor.
