PHP will always run as the same user as Apache runs as. This will often be
something like 'httpd', 'www_run', 'www', 'www-adm', etc but sometimes
user 'nobody' is used for this. So if any files are created by Apache
or PHP during normal operation, these will be owned by that user. The one
exception is the Apache log files - these are normally owned by root, the
user Apache's parent process runs as initially before it forks child
servers running as user 'nobody', etc.
