Linux Symlink chownMar 24, 2009 · 1 minute read
This is post is now quite old and the the information it contains may be out of date or innacurate.
If you try to use chown it will silently fail to change the ownership of the symlink, though instead it will change the ownership of the file the symlink is pointing to.
If you want to make it actually change the owner:group of the symlink, us the switch -h.
chown -h user:group symlink
