Subject Re: [users@httpd] Cannot change User for httpd.exe with Apache2.2 for Windows
Date Fri, 31 Oct 2008 17:11:17 GMT
Hi Eric,

I basically followed the second link. I don't know that the Apache for Windows won't be able
to set the User for httpd.exe. So it means, that the "User" directive in httpd.conf is useless
for Windows?

Thanks,

-- Xin
