I just got my very own Linux (Debian Stable) server, and installed Apache2, PHP5 and MySQL. It's supposed to be used for hosting of my own and others websites.
As it is now, Apache is running as its own user. That means that I need to "chown" all files and folders in a webroot, to the Apache-user, or else Apache can't edit and/or delete them. That is a big problem in Wordpress when installing plugins and such.
I Google'd a little, and found a website which says that you need to run the user's Apache instance as their own user, instead of running Apache as its own user.
How do I do that?
