$ grep :194: /usr/ports/GIDs

Do you know what port, or what piece of software, decided that GID 194
should be "apache" on your system?  That would be what needs to change.

On FreeBSD 6.x or later, the "www" user (UID 80) and "www" group (GID
80) are used for Apache.  These two UID/GIDs are part of the base
system's /etc/passwd and /etc/group.  So I'm not sure what "apache" is
used for in your /etc/group.
