Need help with Apache Permission?


I have a CentOS Machine running with Web Services. I have an application to run which needs a user permission to write to /var/www ( DOCROOT) directory.As I can see that apache user can only write/ access the DOCROOT(correct me if I am wrong?). As of now my directory strcuture is:

Code:
[root@mon35 www]# ls -la
total 92
drwxr-xr-x 11 root      root 4096 Nov 20 18:06 .
drwxr-xr-x 25 root      root 4096 Nov 20 17:50 ..
drwxrwsr-x  2 bent       bent  4096 Oct 30 22:20 becon
drwxr-xr-x  2 root      root 4096 Jan 16  2008 cgi-bin
drwxr-xr-x  3 root      root 4096 Nov 20 17:46 error
drwxr-xr-x  2 root      root 4096 Jan 16  2008 html
drwxr-xr-x  3 root      root 4096 Nov 20 17:48 icons
drwxrwxr-x  2 bent       bent  4096 Nov 20 18:44 imgs
-rw-r--r--  1 bent       bent  3771 Oct 30 22:20 index.html
drwxrwsr-x  2 bent       bent  4096 Oct 30 22:20 js
drwxr-xr-x 14 root      root 4096 Nov 20 17:48 manual
drwxr-xr-x  2 webalizer root 4096 Nov 20 19:02 usage
-rw-rw-r--  1 bent      bent  9908 Oct 30 22:20 watcher.php
[root@mon35 www]#

change the file ownership so apache can write to www dir.
any user that access via web is running as the apache user anyway
