Topic: php-fpm and apache user

I am the same person as the earlier post with v8js.  I am not running apache, but I noticed when installing php-fpm that a user apache gets created and php-fpm runs under that user.  I was able to easily change /etc/php-fpm.d/www.conf back to run under the user nobody to match the PHP default, but is there a way to avoid this and not have the user apache created?

Thanks again for your help.


Re: php-fpm and apache user

All packaged web-app rely on PHP running under the "apache" user, for directory permission, so this the proper default value, for the default pool (www), so these web-app will work out of the box without any configuration change (phpMyAdmin, Wordpress, Roundcubemail, GLPI...).
