    77The easiest (and recommended) way to set up a BOINC server is

    2121BOINC server programs run as two different users:
    2222 * The scheduler and file upload handler are CGI programs, so they run as the same user as the web server (on Fedora this is user '`apache`'; on Debian it's '`www-data`').
     
    5858When serving your project files from Apache, note that all directories up to and including the html directory must have execute permissions.  For example, if you use make_project to create the project template in your home directory, your home directory must have 711 permissions as opposed to the default of 700. If this is not corrected, you will receive a '''403 Forbidden''' error when attempted to browse to your project page. See [http://httpd.apache.org/docs/1.3/misc/FAQ.html#forbidden more information] on dealing with Apache permissions problems].

    6666Some parts of the BOINC server (the feeder and scheduling server) use shared memory. Hosts where these run must have shared memory enabled, with a maximum segment size of at least 32 MB. How to do this depends on the operating system; some information is [http://developer.postgresql.org/docs/postgres/kernel-resources.html here].

     68=== MySQL notes === #MySQL-notes
    6969 * After installing and running the server, grant permissions for your own account and for the account under which Apache runs ('nobody' in the following; may be different on your machine). All MySQL accounts should be password protected, especially `root`.

    9494To limit denial-of-service attacks, we recommend turning off directory indexing by adding `-Indexes` to the [http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/mod/core.html#options Options] directive.
