In spite of the fact that I have apache set to chown to wwwrun, ps -aux
still reports an httpd as owned by root. Actually, there are two httpd
running and one is owned by root and the other is owned by httpd. In
httpd.conf I have StartServers = 1. Why are there two deamons running?

Am I overreacting due to extreme newbieness?

I'm running SuSE 6.3
