Subject Configuring Tomcat to NOT run as Root
Date Tue, 26 Aug 2003 11:59:27 GMT
I am helping set up a Citrix NFuse server running on Solaris, using Tomcat 
and Apache 1.3.  The default install for NFuse 1.7 does not fire up 
Apache, rather it calls Tomcat to start alone.  The default also has this 
running as root, something I am very uncomfortable with.  I have Googled 
and searched archives, and whenever mentioned, it sounds rather trivial 
but I cannot find where in my config files to set this to run as 'nobody'.

I am totally clueless with Tomcat, can anyone help?
