Description Miloslav Trmač 2011-06-28 00:17:46 EDT
httpd.spec currently uses
> --with-suexec-uidmin=500 --with-suexec-gidmin=500
We plan to change the boundary, making it configurable in /etc/login.defs; see https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/1000SystemAccounts .

Please consider changing suexec to parse this file instead of having the boundary compiled-in.  (If parsing /etc/login.defs is not an option, it would probably be best to keep the boundary at 500 and not raise it to 1000; raising it would break upgrades.)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
httpd-2.2.17-13.fc16
Comment 1 Miloslav Trmač 2011-06-28 00:19:59 EDT
See attachment 510191 [details] for the proper way to parse /etc/login.defs.
Comment 2 Miloslav Trmač 2011-07-21 11:27:37 EDT
Per our e-mail discussion, the boundary will remain at 500.
