I'm setting up Splunk Ent. 8.2 on RHEL 8 and wanted to try not utilizing Root as much as possible (Forewarning we are a Windows shop so if this isn't possible please help us understand). I've setup a User called splunk in place of the default admin account it wants to create. We noticed when trying to setup the configuration to port 80 that it would never work, and we ended up having to go back to Port 8000.
I've read up and seen that you can utilize Apache as a proxy to get around this, but that was a pretty old document and not sure if it still applies for newer versions of RHEL or if there is a better approach.
Any help would be greatly appreciated as we are a small shop and are trying to juggle this in the midst of multiple other projects.
