The installation can be performed as a non-apache user, providing that 
apache can read the directory tree.  Apache should not have write access 
to any files created during the build process.

However, the software is run by the apache user, so apache needs to own 
the database.  Assuming a sqlite3 build, syncserver.ini will refer to a 
file as "sqluri".  The file identified by that setting should be owned 
and writable by the apache user.

Is the problem that this application works when it's run standalone, but 
not through apache?  I'm a little unclear since you said that you had 
two clients working.
