re-execute rc.local file only

I am using RHEL 5 and i have configured a daemon that starts automatically when system boots, i have written its startup script on /etc/rc.d/rc.local file and it executes successfully but the problem is that if that daemon stops running (due to any reason) i have to restart/reboot the whole server so that the daemon runs, i need to know that is there a way that we can just re-executes the /etc/rc.d/rc.local file while the whole sytem remains as it is.
any help appreciated,
