to get the username of the process owner (rather than the file owner), you can use:

= posix_getpwuid(posix_geteuid());

On Centos, the Red Hat linux clone, this instruction gives the file's OWNER (the first parameter in instruction 'chown').  It does not reveal the file's GROUP.

get_current_user()  does NOT reveal the current process' user's identity.

The information returned by get_current_user() seems to depend on the platform.

Using PHP 5.1.1 running as CGI with IIS 5.0 on Windows NT, get_current_user() returns the owner of the process running the script, *not* the owner of the script itself.

It's easy to test - create a file containing:

echo get_current_user();

Then access it through the browser. I get: IUSR_MACHINE, the Internet Guest Account on Windows, which is certainly not the owner of the script.

If you have userdir enabled, get_current_user() returns the username of the user hosting the public_html. For example, will return bobevans when calling get_current_user().

Since this only returns the file owner and not the actual user running the script, an alternative in Linux is:

= trim(shell_exec('whoami'));

If you want to get the name of the user who executes the current PHP script, you can use

= getenv('USERNAME') ?: getenv('USER');
$username; // e.g. root or www-data
