I'm trying to change the configuration dynamically (without reboot).
I'm running hostapd v2.6 built using Buildroot on my device.
Hostapd is started from the `/etc/network/interfaces` using that rule:
`post-up /usr/sbin/hostapd -B /etc/hostapd.conf -P /var/run/hostapd.pid`
Once started, I just change the ssid in the configuration file, and
launched `kill -s SIGHUP 270` where 270 is my PID number.
I waited more than 5 minutes without viewing any changes on the SSID.
Also, I tried with `hostapd_cli reconfigure` which returns `Unknown
Here is my config file for information:
# Net interface
# Driver selection (works with mwifiex
# SSID used
# Use of 802.11g base frequency (2.4GHz)
# Channel used
# Enable 802.11n
# Use WPA2
# Set WPA2 password
# Use CCMP
Thank you for your help,
