It is written in /etc/passwd, and "/sbin/nologin" means that the user
"apache" is prohibited to login (ex. by SSH).
You can write each user's default shell here.

But the user "apache" must login for creating its SSH public key, so you
have to "change temporarily" this config as follows:

# usermod -s /bin/bash apache
# (ssh-keygen, etc...)
# usermod -s /sbin/nologin apache
