Matt,

Thanks for the information. I was thinking about the login you
mentioned. The primary application I need this for is Asterisk. Like
apache it is started as root and by passing -U <user> -G <group>
parameters it will run as that <user>/<group> (asterisk/asterisk in my
case). Do I still need to add the info to the initscript or do I add it
to limits.conf?

Thanks and regards,
Patrick
