httpd as the user, instead of nobody?

    Is this possible? I'd like to make better sense of my top processes, and all my httpd threads are 'nobody'.

    Yes, its possible, but I would not recommend it. You will probably break a bunch of scripts and who knows what else because there are already files on your server owned and grouped by nobody and they would have to be manually changed too.

    If you really want to mess with it, see /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf and search for User

    Remember, the user httpd needs to exist before apache can run as it.

    Thanks for the info! That's a bit beyond my capabilities so I'll just leave it alone. :)
