for testing purposes, while configuring my web applications, I change the ownership of my application's folder in the server to the Apache user (www-data in Ubuntu):
Working wiht EC2 and BitNami AMIs, I changed the owner to "apache" and everything ran smoothly:
But when I work in localhost server with a BitNami native stack, the BitNami "apache" user does not exist. And if I change the ownership of the applications folder to Ubuntu's Apache user "www-data", I'm not able to acces it via browser anymore.
Did you face this problem before? What's the apache user for BitNami native stacks?
Thank you very much in advance,

If you have installed as a regular user, the Apache user is the same that your user. If you have installed as root user, the default Apache user is "daemon". I hope it helps.
