[smokeping-users] SmokePing permission

This is my first time trying to install SmokePing. I installed using ports on a FreeBSD machine to learn.
I'm getting the following error trying to start SmokePing:
### assuming you are using an fping copy reporting in milliseconds
ERROR: mkdir /usr/local/etc/smokeping/tmp/data/mysite2: Permission denied
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/smokeping: WARNING: failed to start smokeping
I created the tmp directory under /usr/local/etc/smokeping/ for lack of any documentation I could dig up.
Permissions on this directory are:
[root at freebsd /usr/local/etc/smokeping]# ls -al tmp
drwxr-xr-x 4 www www 512 Feb 3 00:11 .
drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 512 Feb 3 00:12 ..
drwxr-xr-x 2 www www 512 Feb 3 00:11 data
drwxr-xr-x 2 www www 512 Feb 3 00:11 var
I'm assuming that smokeping runs under the Apache www account. Everything does work if chmod 777 the temp dir, but I don't think that's good practice.
What's the proper permission to set here?
