    Hi, is it normal to see apache process under the user nobody with apache suphp activated?

    I ask this because im not sure if i remember this on another server i had with that option. I turned both suphp and userid on when compiling apache.

    On the Cpanel process list i see the account users identified under php and mail process but i also see several nobody apache process. I thought also apache process would list with the account names. Im sure suphp is on, even in php config it shows so.

    SuPHP only controls the user PHP is running as, not Apache. Apache will continue to run as user nobody.

    Seems I am missing something here. If I remember right, phpsuexec (which suphp has replaced) meant that, apart from php running as the user instead of nobody, apache would be compiled to run as cgi, not as a module. And, that meant apache processes would also run under the userid and not as nobody.

    It's a long time, so I may have got some of the facts wrong.:)
