How can I make a discordpy bot update/restart itself without stopping the Flask server

I want to make a command something like [prefix]restart so that my bot doesn't go offline with every little update I make.

i have an idea run a flask server in one tread: make repl run start.sh on start and have that start keep_alive.py which makes a flask server then runs it in a thred then start main.py and have the restart command use os.system('python main.py') and then on the newline exit()
so the restart command would look ike this:

import os # -- rest of code-- #restart command os.system('python main.py') exit()

so then the thread is always running but the bot can restart itself

That would cause recursion.

Not a fork bomb, but nested copy's.
