I have a system where users upload wsgi applications and we serve them using apache/mod_wsgi. For scaling reasons, we're simply using the WSGIDaemonProcess directive and setting them to dynamically allocated UID/GIDs. The problem is, we don't have associated users with these UIDs.
Is there a way to keep mod_wsgi from trying to determine the "user" associated with a particular UID? I can't find a directive anywhere that does this.
EDIT: Taking a look at the mod_wsgi.c source, it appears (near line 9700) that the conditional check for an entry in /etc/passwd is hard-coded.
In other words, this isn't possible.
