    Is that a good or bad thing when a script runs as nobody and not the owner?

    Thanks

    In terms of security it is a good thing. In terms of script writing it can be a nightmare for people not used to the Unix ownership and permission settings e.g. they want to access a file they have uploaded but their script won't open the file because it doesn't own it or isn't in the same group as the person who created the script and the user forgot to chmod the file so that the script could have public access to it.
