Subject TC on port 80: run as root?
Date Tue, 29 Jul 2003 05:35:52 GMT
Hello List...

I'm just using the latest release 4.1.24 as my webserver (no apache) with the intention of
generating all (or nearly all) content from a back-end db.

However I'm worried about starting the server and running as root - security issues.  How
does the apache server use it's own account to run a service below port 1024?  And can I do
similar for my tomcat setup?

Any leads much appreciated,
/j-p.
