Subject: Re: Apache Question About User Permissions

If you have shell access to the server you can find which UID apache is 
running as by executing the following commands:

ps -ef | grep apache

Or the daemon may be called httpd:

ps -ef | grep httpd

The first column from the left is the UID of the process (the owner of 
the PID).

I guess you'll see multiple apache processes.
The first one is most likely running as root.
But  as soon as apache starts it forks and the child processes are 
running as www-data (default for debian) or http, httpd, apache etc.
It's the owner of the child processes you are interested in.
