comment How do I start nginx on port 80 at OS X login?
Can I just check -- you have a .plist in ~/Library/LaunchAgents/ (so it's for one user only), but it starts as root? I've never seen that possibility mentioned in the documentation, and when I tried it on Mavericks it failed.

@jweyrich I see. Thanks for taking the time to make that clear. :-)

@jweyrich Unless I'm mistaken, the Apple docs clearly state that what I'm asking for is possible. See the beginning of the question. Thanks for point out nginx's 'user' directive. If I can't find a better way, I'll use that. However, nginx only applies this directive to the worker processes -- the master process still runs as root. (I've just tested it to be sure.)

I've added to my question, to make it clear that this is not a simple "just use sudo" matter.

@jweyrich I can get the webserver running as root no problem. The problem is: how to start a webserver that listens to port 80 but doesn't run as root.

The service is in private beta-test, so I won't name names. I take your point about security.

My understanding is that it only works like a VPN for the first Megabyte of data (enough for the initial handshake). After the, the DNS somehow persuades the CDN to deliver content directly to my IP address.
