This command is for ISPConfig 2 and it still works with ISPConfig 2. ISPConfig 2 is a different softwae then ISPConfig 3, so this command does not apply to your Installation if you have ISPConfig 3 installed.

ISPConfig 3 does not has to be restarted and can not be restarted as it is no continiously running daemon.
