Subject [users@httpd] user nobody group nobody??
Date Tue, 20 Dec 2005 02:48:41 GMT


I'm wondering about the necessity of placing User Nobody and Group Nobody lines in httpd.conf.


I loaded a high performance type httpd.conf file and these values are left out. Apache still
runs the initial process as root with all child processes run under nobody. 


Is it even necessary to specify the user and group values in an httpd.conf file (unless you
want something different)?
