What 'user' is my apache webserver operating as? I don't see any user that specifically calls itself apache or webserver. Is it just one of the default users? Thx.

Username SYSTEM here on my XP install.  Use Task Manager to see what user/account the process httpd.exe is running under.

By default, all Apache services are registered to run as the system user (the LocalSystem account). The LocalSystem account has no privileges to your network via any Windows-secured mechanism, including the file system, named pipes, DCOM, or secure RPC. It has, however, wide privileges locally.
