www-data is correct for Debian, it may be another name for your system.
You can check the correct user name in Apache configuration file,
usually at /etc/httpd/httpd.conf. Search for "user" and "group".

In this case there is no reason to use the Apache user and group names.
You can use any user, probably it will be safe to use a special user
that can do nothing on the system except serve your wiki pages.
