Subject Running Tomcat as user nobody
Date Wed, 02 Aug 2000 04:51:13 GMT

How can I get Tomcat to run as user "nobody" on my FreeBSD system? I
imagine it's a line or two in one of the startup shell scripts for Tomcat,
but I can't get that to work; I keep getting "this account is not
available" error messages, presumably because nobody is using /sbin/nologin
for a shell.

Here's my configuration:

FreeBSD 3.2
Apache 1.3.12
Tomcat 3.1
JDK 1.1.8 from the FreeBSD ports collection

Even if no one here is running FreeBSD, I'd imagine the procedure is
similar for Linux, if you can tell me how you did it there.
