3.10 Pies Privileges

Normally, pies is run with root privileges. If, however, you found such an implementation for it, that requires another privileges, you may change them using the following three statements:

Config: user user-name

Start pies with the UID and GID of this user.

Config: group group-list

Retain the supplementary groups, specified in group-list.

Config: allgroups bool

Retain all supplementary groups the user (as given with user statement) is a member of.

An example of such implementation is using pies to start jabberd components: http://www.gnu.org.ua/software/pies/example.php?what=jabberd2.
