#2336 accepted defect

Running I2P as root is not solvable (though recommended against)

Description (last modified by anonymous maybe)

Good thing that I2P doesnt run by default with root privileges, but there is another issue:

root@user:/home/user# i2prouter start
Running I2P as the root user is *not* recommended.
Please edit /etc/default/i2p and set the variable RUN_AS_USER.

To run as root anyway, edit /etc/default/i2p and set ALLOW_ROOT=true.
root@user:/home/user# 
  • There is no line ALLOW_ROOT=true
  • add the line wont have any effect

and i suggest to not even give a solution to run I2P as root. but if so, then its even not working.

so either delete/change the message or disable the ability to run I2P as root permanently.
