    Talking granting apache system user to login


    Hello there
    I m learning apache for quite some time now. When the apache service is started using
    Code:
    service httpd start
    In the
    Code:
    ps -el
    O/p a apache user appears on the extreme left side under the user header.
    I was doing some R&D and replaced the shell of apache user fom /bin/nologin to /bin/bash so that it can login like a normal system user ( also set the passwd). Now when I try to login using the username apache and the correct passwd I see that I have logged in for fraction of second and then something forcefully kills my session and again I m presented with the login screen.
    Only if I could understand the man pages

    env |grep TMOUT

    Once you are login with apache user check 'env' variables and check if there is anything name TMOUT=*** set there. It might logout your session after some time. Also what do you see in /var/log/secure.. /var/log/messages
