As of version 10.1.7, the Web Help Desk automatically installs a launchDaemon that restarts the application at 1 AM each night.

If you wish to change the restart time of the launchDaemon, edit:


Change the hour or minute values in the file to match your desired restart time.

You'll then need to unload/load the file to use the new settings:

sudo launchctl unload /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.macsdesign.WebHelpDeskAutoRestart.plist


sudo launchctl load /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.macsdesign.WebHelpDeskAutoRestart.plist
