New log files in VM data folder are created with Root permissions

In FoswikiVM - upgraded to 1.04 I find that when a new month clicks over a new log file is created in the data folder, but with root ownership rather than www-data.

This grinds the server to a halt obviously with:

Foswiki detected an internal error - please check your Foswiki logs and webserver logs for more information.
ERROR: Could not write "2009-05-04T17:30:44Z info | guest | view | Main.WebHome |  Mozilla |" to path: Permission denied

CHOWNing resolves the issue, but what's the permanent fix?
Run your cron jobs as the apache user, not the root user.
