Subject [Bug 61746] New: User directive should be allowed in all context
Date Sat, 11 Nov 2017 18:42:50 GMT

            Bug ID: 61746
           Summary: User directive should be allowed in all context
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.4.29
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: critical
          Priority: P2
         Component: mod_unixd
  Target Milestone: ---

guess there may be security reasons for that to be discouraged, but not
