In fact I really meant the page you get when you click on the word "User", which is http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/mpm_common.html#user.
"It is recommended that you set up a new user and group specifically for running the server. Some admins use user nobody, but this is not always desirable, since the nobody user can have other uses on the system."
"Don't set User (or Group) to root unless you know exactly what you are doing, and what the dangers are."
