I'm setting up a server for running SugarCRM and this is my first time administering an environment myself. In the past I've just been working of managed shared hosting. Typically with SugarCRM there are some permissions issues but I think I can avoid those by setting up my environment properly. There are multiple questions here, even if you can only answer one please help.

How can I set-up a user to be in the same group as the "apache user"?

Do I need to set-up the Apache user manually?

When I added a module through the SugarCRM interface the files it created had www-data as the owner whereas everything else is root. How can I have the modules install under the same owner as everything else?

(Obviously I need to uninstall and reinstall under a non-root user account)

For my non-root administrator account is there anything I should do other than adding to the sudoers file?

Any advice is appreciated

You can change the permissions of a file or directory, and also change the owners.

In your case:

cd /var/www
chown -R www-data:www-data *

That would set everything in your web directories to be owned by www-data.
