Subject [BUG] DEFAULT_USER has to exist
Date Thu, 15 May 1997 05:53:11 GMT
If the DEFAULT_USER or DEFAULT_GROUP doesn't exist, then Apache refuses to
start even though it may not be running as root (and therefore won't
switch uids) or the User directive is pointing to some other user.  This
is an unnecessary hardcoded configuration detail.

Unless anyone can argue that this is a feature not a bug, I will drop it
into the PR database so it isn't forgotten...  

Not a pressing issue.
