Just found out that I was running nginx as the nobody user.  I’d like to change it to rich, but I get this error if installed as user rich; in the nginx.conf:

nginx: [emerg] getgrnam("rich") failed in /usr/local/etc/nginx/nginx.conf:2

I tried the user www but that also received a 403 error.  Not sure who to run nginx as.
