Running a daemon process as another userby toadi (Chaplain)
|on Oct 27, 2004 at 07:39 UTC||Need Help??|
toadi has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I know this is not really a perl question but I don't know where to ask else.
I have written a perl daemon that has to be run as a regular user. Not as root.
I have written a Sysv startup script where I start my script when the system boots. But this happens as root so my perl daemon runs as root.
This is something I don't want.
My opinions may have changed,
but not the fact that I am right
