Well.. on most unix systems I believe, you wont get a program to bind to a port number
that's under 1024 unless the program is being run by root.

The other ports are open to any user.

Not to interrupt an on-going discussion, but I am interested in the
user/group requirements for Apache as well.

I didn't see anywhere on the Apache website for installation steps that
one needs to be root in order to start or run the Apache server, but I
have heard it from others.  So which way is it?

I have been able to install and run Apache as a regular user with no
root privileges, which is what confuses me when some say the user needs
be root.

Can anyone explain the requirements for me?

Thanks much.
Amalan

Do you have the User and Group directives set in your 
httpd.conf file?

Eg

User wwwrun
Group nogroup

Apache will initially start as root user and bind to 
port 80, then switch to running as the specified user and 
group.

The group and user need to be valid system accounts on your 
server.

You will need to set the permissions of the files you want 
apache to serve as this user and group as well.

I'm not sure about DAV, as I do not use this.

The problem may also be with DAV user and group permissions 
as well.

See if you can disable DAV and get Apache running first 
without it. Once you have apache running OK, enable the DAV 
module and see if that works ok then.
