That's right, you shouldn't be running things as apache, you
should be running them as root. If apache owns those files, that makes
things slightly less secure, because then the webserver could
theoretically write to them.

Are you certain that the $webservergroup is correct in
localconfig? There's some permissions problem, obviously--root should
be able to read everything, and set permissions properly. You could
try running checksetup again.
