I recommend just using the mailing list for asking questions about using rsync.

didn't understand it. From the rsyncd.conf manpage:

uid    This parameter specifies the user name or  user  ID
       that  file transfers to and from that module should
       take place as when the daemon was run as  root.  In
       combination  with  the  “gid” parameter this deter-
       mines what  file  permissions  are  available.  The
       default  is  uid  -2,  which  is  normally the user

So even though you started rsyncd as root, it uses "nobody" by default for
