Apache lets you configure the user it runs things as with a "User" 
directive, usually in the main Apache configuration.  Have you tried 
having Apache simply run as *you*?

Email me off-list if you want more help with this, and if you're totally 
confused attach your Apache config file or give me SSH access.
