Re: [mosquitto-dev] mosquitto v1.4 docker container complaingin about user "mosquitto

Hi Avinash,

If you run the broker as root it tries to drop privileges to the
mosquitto user by default. You can change that in the config file if
you want. Or just run as an unprivileged user in the first place.
