    I have the following process in my process manager. Are they safe to Kill and why do I have so many of the same?

    Hello :)

    Apache will run as the "nobody" username. This is normal. I do not suggest killing processes unless you are encountering excessive resource usage.

    Thank you.

    If you enable the suPHP, you will be able to track your users having more processes however you will be able to see processes only for the php scripts for rest files you will see nobody users.
