The DocumentRoot option is set for Apache in your httpd.conf. If you are
running some version of *nix, you can either add user nobody to the
group the DocumentRoot belongs to, or you can use chown to change the
owner of this directory to nobody.

No, this Apache option has nothing to do with Apache/PHP being able to
write to files or directory. It governs which Apache options can be
overriden in sub directories.
