Hello,

After reading this wiki page

I take a look in the running processess and see that directadmin is running as nuser nobody.

Is this intentional or it should have his own user name ?

Thanks for your opinions.

DirectAdmin has root privileges when needed, but and increase/decrease as needed to keep things as secure as possible.
As idling needs no actions, it drops to nobody.

This is normal.
