Subject Why run tomcat as root
Date Thu, 05 Dec 2002 10:33:40 GMT
with respect to security what is the best way to run tomcat on linux? I am
running tomcat3.2.3 with apache1.3.26 and mod_jk
1. Run as root?
2. Run as nobody?
3.Run as other user (eg. tomcat)?

why is running tomcat as a certain user more secure than running it as
others?
If this is the appropriate place to ask a question on apache and tomcat,
what would be the answer to the same question regarding running apache and
tomcat together.

thanx.
