Hi

After a bit of fiddling I managed to get the xitami webserver working on my
computer under root. However for fairly obvious reasons i'd rather not run
the server as root.

So what I did is create  two new users:

xitami
xitami-www

They both share the home directory /home/xitami, difference is, is a setup
that only allows xitami-www read only access to the home folder, xitami has
read write access. Thought it make for quite good security.

Now when I try to start xitami under the user xitami-www I get the following
set of errors:

Xitami/2.5c2
Copyright (c) 1991-2003 iMatrix Corporation
2001/01/28 16:02:22: xilrwp: Could not open LRWP port 81
2001/01/28 16:02:22: Port is already used by another server
2001/01/28 16:02:22: smthttp: web server binding to address 127.0.0.1
2001/01/28 16:02:22: smthttp: opening HTTP service on  port 80...
2001/01/28 16:02:22: could not open port 80
2001/01/28 16:02:22: Port is already used by another server
2001/01/28 16:02:22: Permission denied

Now no services are on port 80 or for that matter 81. I am fairly certain
somethings blocking xitami-www from listening on this port, I wondering what
is likely to be blocking it, and how do I unblock it?
