Hi,

You can also check this via executing below command directly on your server.

# id apache
The output of this command would be like:
uid=48(apache) gid=48(apache) groups=48(apache)

Hi,

The internal Apache configuration will also denote this:
Code:
# grep -E ' (user|group):' /var/cpanel/conf/apache/main
  group:
      group: nobody
  user:
      user: nobody
This is normal. I also wouldn't recommend trying to change the Apache user, as there are certain safeguards in place to prevent abuse by the Apache user `nobody'.

Thanks,
