user that runs apache 2 on SLES 9


anyone know which user runs apache2 on SLES 9?

I have another SLES 9 server running apache.
I do a:

grep "^User" /etc/httpd/httpd.conf

and output I receive is user: wwwrun

But, I get no output for apache2. For apache2, the httpd.conf file is /etc/apache2/httpd.conf but there is no "User" in the file

ps axuw | grep httpd

The user will be the first column. Apache starts off as root that spawns another apache process run as the user specified in httpd.conf. I think the default run as user in apache is apache.
