Yes, it does matter.

What part of the documentation does not make sense?

<http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/mpm_common.html#user>

<http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/mpm_common.html#group>

<http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/misc/security_tips.html#serverroot>

Check the online docs for more details.  However, it sounds like
you are unfamiliar with multiuser OSes such as Unix, Mac OS X
(which is also a BSD-flavor Unix), and even Windoze Server.  Do
some research and build a better foundation to understand Apache
and to ask better Apache questions.
