What version of Fedora DS? Note that the standard Apache used on most
linux platforms will not even allow you to run as root.
This is 1.0.4 on RHEL 4. The issue is that when I try to configure the
admin server to use a reserved port I get a dialog stating "inadequate
permission. Port is protected."
Ideally we'd like to be able to use "Directory Server Express" to
provide users with the ability to reset their own passwords. Since this
should be secure it seems like it would make more sense to run the
service on port 443 rather than an unreserved port. I'm just stumbling
on actually getting this part to work.
