Ok, check to see what user Apache is running as.  Issue the command:

ps -ef | grep http

You should see something like this:

wwwrun   17153  1097  0 Sep14 ?        00:00:06 /usr/sbin/httpd2-prefork 
-f /etc/apache2/httpd.conf

The first column (wwwrun in my case) is the user that the web server is 
running under.  Then enter:

groups wwwrun

But substitute your first column for wwwrun, you will get something like 

wwwrun : www

www is the group name that the web server is running under.  That should 
be the response to the question 'What group is your web server running 
under?' (or how ever it's phrased).
