first i'm running XAMPP 1.7.4. I want to start the apache (httpd) process from the administrator user, but I want it to drop privileges to a local user on the system. I created my user and group 'apacheadmin' on the system and set the directive in httpd.conf as follows:
- Code: Select all
# If you wish httpd to run as a different user or group, you must run
# httpd as root initially and it will switch.
# User/Group: The name (or #number) of the user/group to run httpd as.
# It is usually good practice to create a dedicated user and group for
# running httpd, as with most system services.
It starts up fine, but when i look at it in the task manager, it still shows the process running as Administrator. I thought maybe it was a permissions issue, so I made sure that 'apacheadmin' had full control over all files in the xampp directory. Didn't see to help.
What am i missing?
