Is it possible to start hipache on port 80 and then drop priveleges to a non-admin user?
Not planned for now; but tagging as enhancement since this would be indeed an interesting feature.
Drop priveleges, fixes #7
Is this still something wanted in the app?
Or can we instead suggest that people start the app with a non-root user / non privileged port and instead use setcap / authbind / iptables?
I would love to get your input on this (see my previous comment). Also, from the OS integration/distribution future POV? (not at ease with that part)
Dropping privileges would be nice, but in the short term, setcap is totally acceptable.
@jpetazzo Thanks! I'll get priv dropping in the 0.4 timeframe then.
Here is the proposed behavior implemented in the PR:
It's on master (-> 0.4) (#143).
