Changing the HTTP Load Balancer Configuration

If you change a load balancer configuration by creating or deleting references to servers, deploying new applications, enabling or disabling servers or applications, and so on, export the load balancer configuration file again and copy it to the web server’s config directory. For more information, see Exporting the HTTP Load Balancer Configuration File

The load balancer plug-in checks for an updated configuration periodically based on the reload interval specified in the load balancer configuration. After the specified amount of time, if the load balancer discovers a new configuration file, it starts using that configuration.
