minimal set of users?
I think I can handle the installs, what I need to know is what is the minimal set of users I should create? The only user on there now is root and I feel like I need to have a "webapps" user or something like that under which all these apps (apache, mysql, etc) will run. Should I have a seperate user for moodle and php as well? Should I have a seperate "web admin" and "web developer" user? The latter for when I need to upload new scripts, html, etc when developing applications.
Any guidance or pointers to resources would be great! thanks.
If you install MySQL, Apache and most server apps using your distributions packages, then dedicated users for those apps are automatically created for you (look in /etc/passwd).
