Which user should own the Virtual Host Document Root Folder?

I followed this guide to setup a wordpress installation. Wordpress The only thing I changed was I moved the wordpress installation to the root html folder instead of keeping it in the wordpress directory.

I got a permissions error when running this command

chown -R nobody:nobody html/
The error was "invalid group.".

This prevented wordpress from writing and creating the wp-config.php file.

I ran this command instead chown -R nobody html/ which fixed the problem. But my question is now the entire Document Root folder has nobody as the user and root as the group. What should be the correct user to own a Litespeed VirtualHost Document Root html folder?
