I've installed majordomo 1.94.1 on my Linux box (it not a web server) for
installation testing. Now, I'm trying to install it on my work's web
server. So things I didn't pay attention to on my linux box are now very
While editing the Makefile and majordomo.cf files, I got confused about what
address and user is for what.
1) the very first paragraph of the INSTALL file mentions creating a user
called majordomo.daemon for majordomo to run. Then it talks about
creating a user account for yourself with user/group id equal to daemon in
order to administer majordomo without having to change to su. I assume
that the two accounts are not the same: one for the software to run with
sufficient rights and one for me to carry out manage functions. Right?
2) in the Makefile, you specify the user and group numbers majordomo will
runs as. This refers to majordomo.daemon. Right?
3) in the majordomo.cf file, one of the items you are supposed to specify
$whoami=Who do users send requests to me as? (is this the same as
majordomo.daemon? Does this account need daemon grp priveleges, or just
an account to receive e-mail commands from users?)
Forgive my ignorant questions, but I want to be sure before I continue.
