Subject [Httpd Wiki] Trivial Update of "NonRootPortBinding" by TimBannister
Date Wed, 03 Oct 2012 22:18:34 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Httpd Wiki" for change notification.

The "NonRootPortBinding" page has been changed by TimBannister:
http://wiki.apache.org/httpd/NonRootPortBinding?action=diff&rev1=3&rev2=4

Comment:
Noted that “POSIX” capabilities are not part of POSIX

  == What you need ==
  You need two things:
  
-  * an operating system with POSIX capabilities;
+  * Linux with “POSIX capabilities”;
   * utilities to manipulate these capabilities.
+ 
  
  Here, we will use:
  
-  * Linux - any distribution will do, as long as it has a 2.6.24 kernel compiled with POSIX
capabilities (so beware if you use a custom kernel);
+  * Linux - any distribution will do, as long as it has a recent kernel compiled with POSIX
capabilities (so beware if you use a custom kernel);
   * the setcap(8) and getcap(8) utilities.
  
  We suppose that you have Apache installed, and that the httpd binary is {{{/usr/sbin/httpd}}}.
Some distributions put it in another location (Debian, for instance, uses {{{/usr/sbin/apache2}}}).

  }}}
  Obviously the configuration of your apache server to listen on port 8080
  
+ 
+ NB. POSIX draft 1003.1e specifies a concept of permissions called "capabilities", but this
draft has been withdrawn. However, that's the term used in most of the Linux documentation
for this kernel feature.
