    2323 * BOINC daemons runs as whoever created the project (let's say user '`boincadm`', group '`boinc`').

    25 By default, the directories created by user apache are not world-writeable. This causes problems: for example, when the file upload handler creates a directory in the [DirHierarchy upload hierarchy], it's owned by (apache, apache), and the [http://boinc.berkeley.edu/trac/wiki/FileDeleter file deleter] (which runs as `boincadm`) won't be able to delete the files there.

    7979 * BOINC gets MySQL compiler and linker flags from a program called `mysql_config` which comes with your MySQL distribution. This sometimes references libraries that are not part of your base system installation, such as `-lnsl` or `-lnss_files`. You may need to install additional packages (often you can use something called 'mysql-dev' or 'mysql-devel') or fiddle with Makefiles.
    8080 * MySQL can be the bottleneck in a BOINC server. To optimize its performance, read about [MysqlConfig configuring MySQL for BOINC].
