Subject AW: [users@httpd] Is it possible to install apache server with non-root user [wd-vc]
Date Thu, 29 Oct 2015 09:49:07 GMT
Since httpd requires root privilege to bind to port 80, it needs to be run by the superuser,
so from a security POV it should NOT be installed by another userid.
You also need root privilege on many UNIXen to run the child processes under a different userid,
if such is specified in the User directive of the configuration file.
