Is there a way to figure out which user it is that executes a php-script in a webserver using php-commands? (I don't have shell access to the server running httpd, so I cant use ps.)

Use the function posix_getuid.

    Thanks. That was the key-idea. In the end I used print_r(posix_getpwuid(posix_getuid()));
