    On one of my cpanel boxes if you do a top httpd is running as root - this a bug from that last cpanel update or is apache normally under root? Something seems a bit off to me.

    Go on, have a guess
    No, that's quite correct. The main httpd process runs as root, the children should be running as nobody.
