I'm needing to understand the correct workflow for managing permissions to allow the ColdFusion 9 runtime user {coldfusion} to have access to user accounts.

The germane elements ...

Centos 5.8 WHM 11.32.4 cPanel EasyApache ColdFusion 9

ColdFusion 9 is installed and proxying connections to jrun server through Apache via mod_jrun22 ...

On the cPanel side - Apache user are username:usergroup in vhost containers ...

Apache is running as the nobody account and through suExec runs as the account user specified in the vhost container ... However, this doesn't seem to be an option for the ColdFusion user ...

So the basic question is how do I give permissions to the ColdFusion user account to run the same way the Apache account does?
