Subject Question about mod_privileges
Date Mon, 04 Jul 2011 20:06:09 GMT
When testing 2.3.13 I built mod_privileges. I notices that I couldn't
load it if the process was run by a non root user.

Platform was Solaris 10, and the problem was, that the module wants to
add proc_setid to PRIV_PERMITTED. Of course the module needs this
privilege to work and a normal user doesn't have it.

What's the suggested way to handle this? Run as root, or assign the
proc_setid privilege to the chosen runtime user? Are there any caveats?

I'm asking, because i want to improve the docs a bit.
