    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`').
    23  * BOINC daemons runs as whoever created the project (let's say user '`boincadm`', group '`boinc`').
    24 DO NOT RUN BOINC DAEMONS (OR ANYTHING ELSE) AS 'root'.
     23 * BOINC daemons runs as whoever created the project (let's say user '`boincadm`', group '`boinc`').  '''Do not run BOINC daemons (or anything else) as root'''.

    2625By 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 [FileDeleter file deleter] (which runs as `boincadm`) won't be able to delete the files there.
