This module allows ZNC to drop root privileges on systems that implement POSIX setuid/setgid such as RedHat based systems (FedoraCore, CentOS, RHEL).


This global module takes the user id and group id (or user name and group name) separated by a space to run ZNC as rather than root as arguments. You cannot specify uid/gid 0 or user/group root. (That is exactly what this module prevents.)
