Adding user and group for apache to use
I found this thread while searching for a solution to the same problem. I am a relative newbie and have a possibly silly question: If I am creating a user and group called apache for Apache to use, what kinds of security issues do I need to consider? In my http.conf file I added
in the <IfModule> section. To create a linux user on my system called apache, how should I set up the password, and how does Apache itself use this password when it launches? I know these may be very elementary questions but that's where I'm at here :-) I appreciate any help you all are willing to offer.
