PHP lchgrp() Function

Hello folks! welcome back to a new edition of our tutorial on PHP. In this tutorial guide, we are going to be studying about the PHP lchgrp() Function.

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


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 PHP function returns true on success, or false on failure.


Try out the below example -

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

   lchgrp($link, 8);

Alright guys! This is where we are rounding up for this tutorial guide. In our next tutorial guide, we are going to be discussing about the PHP lchown() Function.
