It doesn't matter which user you've started apache with. The
permissions apache works with are by default set to 'www-user' (in
apache2.conf), meaning that www-user needs to have access to your
document root folder.

Check which folder is your document root and I think this command
should ix your problem:
>> chown www-user /path/to/document/root
