Of course you do! Otherwise, how could a file be "owned" by user "apache"? Check the /etc/passwd file. There's probably an entry for user apache.

What this user might not have is a login shell (done by setting the shell in /etc/passwd to /bin/false) or might not have a valid password. However, if you can sudo/login to root, you can sudo/login to apache.

Run the pre-commit hook as user apache and unset PATH. This will emulate how your pre-commit hook is being run.
