root is usually needed to bind port 80 and 443 so usually people want to
start it using root. But apart of the binding, having everything running
as root is dangerous especially for something that's public facing so
usually root is only used for stuff which requires it and then the
worker processes, the processes which actually handle requests, are run
as different user. The `user` directive is used to tell which user the
processes should be run as.

The directive defaults to `user nobody nobody` so `user root` means you
explicitly want the workers to run as root instead of nobody (assuming
it works).

While it runs, without working pid file, you'll need alternative way of
maintaining the process (upgrade, config reload, log rotate, shutdown,
etc). Especially `-s` switch of `nginx` can't be used to control running
process because it doesn't have valid pidfile.
