I just tried to install (and then start) Apache2 HTTPD, but was greeted with the error:
apache2: bad group name 'www-data'
I quickly checked my
/etc/group, and there is no
www-data group. I always assumed it exists on Debian by default (or, at least, is created when I install an HTTPD).
So, why does it not exist? If I remember correctly, it usually exists on Debian by default. I guess I could just create it, but I'm wondering if there's a certain intention behind this.
