Probably nothing at all.  You need to look in httpd.conf to see what User is
set to.  If you can't look in httpd.conf (at an ISP) <?php phpinfo();?> may
tell you.

If all else fails, you can *probably* do:
<?php exec("/usr/bin/whoami", $results, $errorcode);?>
echo implode("<BR>\n", $results);
if ($errorcode){
    echo "OSError $errorcode.  Usually path/permissions.  man
errno.<BR>\nMaybe don't even have permission to exec whoami... :-(<BR>\n";
