We need to run apache2 as root; however, we dont want to give our web
developer root access to modify the apache2 files as that, at one time, was
We started doing this quite some time ago; however, I'm not sure that we
need to continue doing this. Is there any risk to giving the webadmin write
permissions to the httpd.conf file and allowing hiim to start and stop the
system with apachectl as long as root owns all the other files?
most of our systems are rhel 3.0 and above and we use apache2 instead of teh
httpd that comes with the system.
