    I need to know who is listed as the owner for apache for a script I am installing. Is it "root root"?

    Go on, have a guess
    I don't really understand your question, but if you have enabled suEXEC, then scripts will run under the username and group of the main cPanel account, i.e. username:username

    If you don't have suEXEC enabled, they will run under nobody:nobody, but that's a great security risk.

    The script I am installing states that it needs to be chowned to the same as owner as apache.

    Well, erm, it's wrong, or rather the developers are :rolleyes:

    As I said, it depends on whether you have suEXEC enabled as to what you need to set as the ownership of a script.
