SSH Change of Owner files/folders

SSH Change of Owner Files/folders

 You want to issue the chown (change owner) command, for example:


chown user /home/user

The command above will change just the folder /home/user. If you wanted to change all of the files and folders within a given directory you would use:

chown -R user /home/user

If you wanted to change the user and group at the same time you would use:

chown user:group /home/user

Where '/home/user' is the path to the directory. If you wanted to change one file then you would specify the file at the end of the path. Please be VERY careful doing this.
