Not require the "mediagoblin" user during install (or, other permissions solutions)
|Reported by:||Christopher Allan Webber||Owned by:|
Our present docs are presently very confusing because we suggest users make a "mediagoblin" user, but this isn't the same user that the web server runs as. Thus, people tend to run into permission issues. It would be easier for the user to run as www-data on Debian and similar machines, and whatever the equivalent is on Fedora/Red Hat/etc.
How to do this and not make it *more* confusing? Maybe we could have some way to have separate install pages for each distro but have them "build" from the same base? I'm not sure that's possible though.
Other solutions to help us avoid permision issues would also help.
