CHOWN

CHange OWNer :

CHOWN is a UNIX command that allows you to set :

  • the owner of a file or directory
  • the users group to which this owner belongs

In case you want to apply this definition to a directory , the -R option of CHOWN nables you to perform this operation recursively .

So you avoid the tedious task of updating all the files and subdirectories of this directory yourself .
