move a new file/folder into the HTML directory, it is automatically owned
by me (a non-apache person). Problem is, that file is not available to be
served until I do chown to apache.

>As for your Apache server, well, in order for Apache to be able to serve
the file, it must have at least read permission on it, regardless of who
owns it. Normally you would want all the files in your HTML directory to be
owned by the server anyway. So, you must either chown all the files over to
apache, or "chmod 644" them so that apache can read them.
