    By default Apache runs as user nobody and group nobody.

    I read somewhere that this could be risky and a security problem, and recommends to run apache as it own username and group "apache"

    Running apache as apache.apache works fine? or the cpanel config gets screw up for example when you do a cpanel update, etc? Please someone that is running this config let me know.

    What advantage will I get?

    Thanks.
