Subject [users@httpd] Which user to run?
Date Sat, 12 Apr 2008 16:06:47 GMT

in the default configurations I know apache runs as a dedicated users  
(e.g. www). This user has no login shell set thus it is impossible to  
login as this user and it usually has no home dir set either.
With my setup I have an (human) user hat has a login shell and  
homedir. This users manages the data in the Document Root via SSH. The  
problem that occurs within that setup is that files created by apache  
are owned by user www thus read only to the human who manages these  

What is best way to cope with this problem?
