RE: [OT] Is it safe to 'su' to the right user?

Does it have to be run with setuid?

Normally the main reason for running a webserver as a sudoer is because
root is needed for to use of a privileged port like ‘80’?

If it is only a test server perhaps you could run from 8080?

svnserve itself uses port 3690. But, supervise, the process that
spawns svnserve, runs as root. That is why I need to sudo to the
right user.

Thanks to you and Eric !
