I am little bit confused about the use of a dedicated user (fredhopper) as recommended by Fredhopper learning Center for Fredhopper installation on linux.
Can we use superuser or root user to install Fredhopper on Linux box instead of a dedicated user named "fredhopper"?
Will there be any pros and cons of using superuser?
Will there be any issue while fetching the data in Tridion driven application later on?
We are using Tridion 2013 SP1 with SmartTarget 2014 SP1 and fredhopper-7.5-revision-13.
Thanks in advance.
