How to configure Apache Server with port less than 1024?

Goal: Apache Server runs on a http port and needs to be started/stopped as non-root user if Apache Server port is greater than 1024. How to make Apache server run as root user if port is less than 1024 in linux environment?

  1. Login as root user.
  2. Goto Apache directory say $ORACLE_HOME/Apache/Apache/bin
  3. Change ownership of apachectl as root chown root .apachectl
  4. Change permission as chmod 6750 .apachectl
