Creating a separate linux user for each Web site

For added security it's a good idea to run each Web site as a separate user. For this, I use the following command:

sudo adduser --system --no-create-home <username>

You can then instruct mod_wsgi to use this user:

WSGIDaemonProcess user=<username>

Obviously in both snippets, you replace <username> with an actual username.
