I have installed monit for many applications with the root user. One of the applications is started with a non-root user account.
Unfortunately, when I update my app, I also need to restart it. My update process uses the non-root user (I use capistrano to udpate my app)
Since Monit is checking this app and the update process is done with the non-root user. In order to restart the app, the non-root user kills the app and monit restarts it.
I would like to allow the non-root user to be allowed to only restart this specific app. This user shouldn't be aloud to run other monit related actions.
Is there a way to allow a user run a specific monit action, even if he is not the owner of the monitrc ?
