Apache can't access directory with permission www-data

Hello All. My OS is Linux Mint 17.
My goal is allow reading of /mnt/wwwdata for root and apache only.
I trying to setup apache document root in directory /mnt/wwwdata,
with rights 0770 for group wwwadmins, which contains users "root" and "www-data".
Apache was compiled from sources, not installed with apt-get. It places in /usr/local/apache2.

At this moment apache can't access php files in this directory. When i set 0777 to , it helps.

I suspect, that my compiled apache is another user, than 'www-data'. How I can to know name of apache?
