11 Does redmine even work when run through apache? The ebuild goes to a lot
12 of trouble to make everything owned by "redmine," but then the apache
13 vhost runs as the default "apache" user.
15 Running multiple web applications as the same user is a bad idea in
16 general, but it's hard to say what the best solution is without knowing
17 how well things work currently. For example, if using apache doesn't
18 work, I'd say definitely leave things alone: it's better to run the
19 built-in rails server as a separate user from all of the other web apps
20 on the machine.
