Does changes to assets needs server restart ?

In production version, if user uploads an image file which gets uploaded to assets folder of the application, do we need to restart the server for that file actually be visible ? (Currently I see an error 404)

Of course the best practice would be to put user uploads into CloudFront or Amazon s3 like services and provide an abstraction with proper access controls but I am curious to know the answer to the above question.
