Why can't I run the bot as root?

Answer

The parameter '-RunningAsRootIsEvilAndIKnowThat' has been disabled as running the bot with the root user is a potential security risk and is generally considered bad practice.
You should always run any program with the least amount of permissions required.

So how can I run the bot then?
Start the bot with another user or use a startscipt to run the bot.
You'll have to change the ownership of the entire folder to the new user.
