Well.. on most unix systems I believe, you wont get a program to bind to a port number that's
under 1024 unless the program is being run by root.

The other ports are open to any user.

Not to interrupt an on-going discussion, but I am interested in the
user/group requirements for Apache as well.

I didn't see anywhere on the Apache website for installation steps that
one needs to be root in order to start or run the Apache server, but I
have heard it from others.  So which way is it?

I have been able to install and run Apache as a regular user with no
root privileges, which is what confuses me when some say the user needs
be root.

Can anyone explain the requirements for me?

Thanks much.
Amalan
