CHECKGID(8) System Manager's Manual CHECKGID(8)

NAME

checkgid - checks the gid

SYNOPSIS

checkgid group

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the checkgid command.
checkgid is a program that checks whether it can setgid to the group specified. This is to see if it is a valid group for apache2 to use at runtime. If the user (should be run as superuser) is in that group, or can setgid to it, it will return 0.
