If that's the system bus that you're talking about, then the X11
initialisation should not happen. The address of the system bus is known.
But I doubt you're talking about the system bus. You're probably talking about
the session bus.
To access the session bus, you must have the address of the bus and the proper
UID. The address is given by the DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS environment
variable, that is set by dbus-launch at the start of the session and is shared
by all processes in that session. If you don't have that variable set, your
process probably doesn't belong to the session in the first place (Apache
processes certainly look like they don't belong).
If the environment variable isn't set, the library tries to use something else
that is also keyed to the session and that's the X11 display. Your process is
apparently not able to connect to X11 either.
So, please ask yourself: does your process belong to the session or not?
If it doesn't, you probably want to use the system bus.
