Angry Changing apache run group makes mysql cry


I reciently changed /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf to make apache run as "apache:users" instead of "apache:apache". Changing the group to "users" was to make my samba setup work nicer than it has been.

Anyway, if I do change the apache group, anything that uses mysql (such as my phpMyAdmin, and TorrentFlux) don't work. phpMyAdmin seems to be able to read the mysql stuff but can't edit/write and the theme doesn't work properly (like it can't read the css file) and TorrentFlux won't let me log in, so it's like it can't read or write.

Upon changing the run group back to apache, phpMyAdmin magically works properly again (can't verify for torrentflux, I deleted it while fiddling)

Any ideas what may use this? I have the apache/mysql install from the disc, and run yum nightly updates.

Thanks for reading, any help at all would be greatly appreciated.


EDIT: I just remembered that I also added "umask 002" to /etc/init.d/httpd. I don't know if that makes a difference to anything, though I don't see why it would, everything seemed to work fine after i did, before i messed with the apache run group.

EDIT2: I just checked my my.cnf and php.ini files for anything about apache run group info but couldn't find anything. I also tried to make a new group, and tried running apache as that new group, but things still went funny. If you would like any conf files or additional info posted please ask, thanks.
