Who is the web user?

** sorted, thanks.
I have a Linux server that I am slowly learning how to use. A friend of mine who is very good with Linux not available for lots of questions set it up for me. I am at the moment trying to install Smarty Templates. I have a question about part of the installation instructions that I have copied below.
In our example, the document root is /web/www.domain.com/docs and the
web server username is "nobody". We will keep our Smarty files under
Who is the web server username that nobody is referring to?
Another question I have is about the location of the Smarty files. The installation docs suggest /usr/local/lib/php/Smarty/
Why that directory particularly? There was no php directory in /usr/local/lib/. I set one up and copied the files as instructed. I am just curious about that choice of location.
