The Foswiki InstallationGuide, Step 2 section shows an ownership table for various operating systems. However the row with FreeBSD shows a non-existent group named 'wwwadmin'. Instead the default FreeBSD (11.2-RELEASE and 12.0-RELEASE) web user/group should be 'www:www'. This account is created at OS install and is used by FreeBSD apache24. A link to the document section:

FreeBSD 11.2:
root@freebsd11: # freebsd-version ; grep "www" /etc/passwd /etc/group
/etc/passwd:www:*:80:80:World Wide Web Owner:/nonexistent:/usr/sbin/nologin

FreeBSD 12.0:
root@freebsd12:~ # freebsd-version ; grep "www" /etc/passwd /etc/group
/etc/passwd:www:*:80:80:World Wide Web Owner:/nonexistent:/usr/sbin/nologin
