Can I Change the Group and User of the Website Folders and Files

  • Answered
I want to run the website using a non-login user and group. I have tried using the "nobody" group but this did not work even though it is the group and user in the "httpd.conf" file.

Not quit sure how this al works with my VPS account. I don't mind switching the group and user to run the site and then to edit the site.
Is this possible?
Thanks you.
Hello openii5,

Thank you for contacting us about changing the Group and user of Folders/Files. Due to Apache, the website files on our servers need be owned by the user.

We are happy to help you further, but will need additional information on what you are trying to accomplish.

Let us know if you have any further questions.

Thank you,
