Subject [users@httpd] root process running Apache
Date Fri, 12 Apr 2013 16:38:49 GMT
I am running apache2  with Ubuntu so that I can practice writing CGI/SQL 
scripts with perl.
In ports.conf I have:

NameVirtualHost *:80
Listen 127.0.0.1:80

the intention being to limit access only to my laptop (keep the outside 
world out).

I read several times "don't run apache as root".
ps -ef gives me the following:

root            1448        1  0 Apr11 ?        00:00:04 
/usr/sbin/apache2 -k start
www-data  1712  1448  0 Apr11 ?        00:00:00 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start
www-data  1713  1448  0 Apr11 ?        00:00:00 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start
www-data  1714  1448  0 Apr11 ?        00:00:00 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start
www-data  1715  1448  0 Apr11 ?        00:00:00 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start
www-data  1716  1448  0 Apr11 ?        00:00:00 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start
www-data  7304  1448  0 11:14 ?        00:00:00 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start
www-data  7305  1448  0 11:14 ?        00:00:00 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start
www-data  7306  1448  0 11:14 ?        00:00:00 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start


My question is - what is that root process?  Should I ignore it?

Thanks,
Walt
