So every time I try to install Open edX, I keep getting a warning message telling me it is not recommended to run Open edX as a root user. I have no idea how to run this as a nonroot user and I’ve rifled through a bunch of sites looking for help with no actual solutions. Help, please!
Have you tried this?
This is the latest and most easiest method to install Open edX…
