Subject Re: [users@httpd] "bad user nobody" - why nobody?

-> no it can be any user who you define (without root :)). its your choice.
-> but you must say apache in httpd.conf which user he shoud take to start
-> the server.

This is in my httpd.conf:

User httpd
Group nextra

I would not wonder about this if i had 'nobody' in config file.
But it seems apache has user 'nobody' compiled in and I'd like to know
what's happening.
