Setting up Apache user account in RedHat

I find myself deriving this from first principals when I setup a new webserver, so I'm going to blog it so I don't forget. This is how I setup a RedHat user account on a new webserver:

useradd admin -G apache
chgrp -R apache /var/www
chmod -R g+rw /var/www
chmod g+s /var/www
ln -s /var/www/html ~admin/www
passwd admin
