Subject Re: Getting User and Group from custom httpd.conf
Date Tue, 16 Dec 2003 22:43:20 GMT
I think that whatever logic we adopt for inheriting User and Group directives, 
someone will get bitten by it not doing the right thing, as they may not have 
their global httpd.conf set right.

Suggestion #1:

set APACHE_GROUP and APACHE_USER environment variables in your shell startup 
script, so it'll affect any Apache-Test runs

Suggestion #2:

Don't build/test as root. This is a bad practice. Build/test as a normal user 
and only 'su'/'sudo' when running 'make install'.
