    The controlling process is not running PHP however. PHP is probably
    running as www or nobody.

    Try writing to /tmp (or some other directory writeable by nobody)

    If you really want to write to the same log directory as the
    apache logs, use PHP's apache_note function to pass data to apache
    and in your httpd.conf file use a custom log format for the
    data passed.
