Why not run uwsgi instances as root

I am reading through the uWSGI documentation and it warns to always avoid running your uWSGI instances as root. What is the reason behind this? Does it matter if it is the only process (besides nginx) running in a docker container, serving up a flask application?

Kinda how “apache dynamic virtual hosts” routes web hosts to their webroot folder based on their name (http://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/vhosts/mass.html).

Sharing installed tools from one container to all containers with docker compose

I am pretty new with Docker, and understanding how containers work and work together. I am creating a LEMP stack where i have nginx and php7-fpm as seperate containers. Each one has a Dockerfile and basically creates all i need. My issue though is when installing tools (such as ffmpeg, exiftool, etc..) in one container, […]

ERROR: mkdir with chown not working in Dockerfile (nginx with php-fpm)
