Check your configuration file which could be apache.conf httpd.conf or commonapache.conf depending on your distro. In there will be the directive for User and Group. You can grep through the file, or what I do:
less filename.conf
And then:
/
To start the search function and type:
user
And it should bring you to the user directive.

Cool
