Linux Command: chown

This is a guide I’m mainly written a personal how-to guide, but I hope it can help others.

System Ubuntu Server
Version 16.04
Official manual Page chown

This is a fairly generic Linux-based command so it work across different Ubuntu editions and versions.

To change owership of single or multiple file/directory:

chown -R openhab:openhab /opt/containers/openhab/


-R recursively change ownership down file system
user:group user and optional group to have ownership
