Use assigned uid/gid numbers for server applications
|Reported by:||Owned by:|
Many times the book instructs the user to create a new user and group when installing a daemon such as ftp, httpd, etc. If the useradd/groupadd are done without specifying the uid/gid, the new number will be mixed in with regular users. Generally system uid/gid values should be less than 100. BLFS should recommend a uid/gid for each process and put that in the useradd/groupadd instructions. Additionally, it would be appropriate for the uid and gid values to be the same.
