PHP lchgrp() Function


Hello dear readers! welcome back to another edition of our tutorial on PHP. In this tutorial guide, we are going to be discussing about the PHP lchgrp() Function.

The built-in PHP lchgrp() function changes the group ownership of a symlink.

Syntax

Following below is the syntax to use this function -

bool lchgrp ( string $filename , mixed $group )


This built-in function can attempt to change the group of the symlink filename to group. Only superuser may be able to change the group of a symlink arbitrarily, other users may only change the group of a symlink to any group in which that user is a member.

Return Value

This built-in function returns true on success, or false on failure.

Example

Try out the below example -

<?php
   $target = "/PhpProject/PhpTest.php";
   $link  = "/PhpProject/test.html";
   symlink($target, $link);

   lchgrp($link, 8);
?>
