In linux, under apache, "ps -A|grep apache" should give you that info... It'll
ba your apache user.

Subject: Re: HTTPS certificate not accepted
Tim or Christian,
Do you know how where I can find the user name with which RB is
running as? What config file? I assume this is different than the user
name that is used to log into RB.
Currently, I have a different error:
HTTPS certificate not accepted. Please ensure that the proper
certificate exists in ~/.subversion/auth for the user that reviewboard
is running as.
So may be I can change this user name to my login user name, which can
access my SVN server.
