With Hijack, I can issue SITE RW to remount the disks read-write. But...

If I issue SITE REBOOT over FTP, the disks are remounted read-only. I'd like the player to have the opportunity to rebuild (and write) the database files.

I've also tried SITE EXEC echo reboot > /proc/empeg_notify. Same outcome.

Is there a way to mount the disks read-write and restart the player app without messing around with a serial connection?

Also: did the SITE command ever get implemented over HTTP, rather than FTP?
