Looked at both of these before posting, groupmod lets you change group
names and group id's and not add users to groups, and the useradd -G
would change apache from one group to another without leaving them in
the existing group unless all existing groups were specified... or
that could be just my bad interpretation of the man file.
> gpasswd -a <username> <group>
Perfect.... exactly what I was looking for, thanks Paul,
