I have a question about best practice for running a dedicated Magento server. We have a security consultant who want to run the site as APACHE while the Magento documentation says we should run as a web user
Dedicated Magento server only. As a user with root privileges, enter the following command to set ownership of the Magento installation directory and all its subdirectories: chown -R web-server-user-name .
I am trying reconcile the reasoning on running as the apache user compared to a different user? Is running as the apache user more secure?
