Owner of NGINX process
I’ve just installed nginx and wondering why there are two processes.
One process is owned by
root, the other one is owned by
PID USER PR NI VIRT RES SHR S %CPU %MEM TIME+ COMMAND 7017 root 20 0 124972 1432 80 S 0.0 0.3 0:00.00 nginx 7018 www-data 20 0 125332 3168 1588 S 0.0 0.6 0:00.00 nginx
I didn’t changed the
nginx.conf yet, so the configured user is still
Is it correct that one process is owned by
root? Is that a security risk I need to worry about?
Thank you very much!
