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.
