I have a development server with several instances of wordpress installed, and am adding instances constantly. I have an issue where the server uploads files as the apache user & group, but the wp-content/uploads folder (as well as all of the other wordpress files) belong to ftpuser / psacln. I can chmod the folder to give apache the proper permissions, but this is frustrating to do for every installation. Is there some way I can change the user/group permissions so that this no longer happens?

You could add the apache user to the psacln group and make the folder writable for the group.
