Configure Limited User Account for UniformServer

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone has taken the steps necessary to make their UniformServer extra secure by making a limited user account in windows and running UniformServer from that account?

 

I have some 'strange' idea that it is bad to run UniformServer from an account which has Administrator privileges. (I come from the land of UNIX)

 

I have tried making an account named UNIFORMSERVER which belonges to the USER group and then part by part tried to configure the filesystem to allow it to run various things using the CALCS command prompt tool.

 

No luck...and it's making me crazy.

 

 

Please advise...

you cannot run a .bat or a .vbs file under a limited account. Windows? But i can say that it is safe to run in a Administrative Account. It does not mess with your system or anything of such.

 

If you experience any problems, just hit us back.

Have a look at this forum topic found on ApacheLounge.com, Jailing Apache On Windows :D

 

 

That article has moved. Its new location is:
