PHP lchown() 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 lchown() Function.

The built-in PHP lchown() function changes the user ownership of a symlink.


Following below is the syntax to use this function -

bool lchown ( string $filename , mixed $user )

This built-in function can attempt to change the owner of a symlink filename to the user, and only the superuser may change the owner of a symlink.

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);

   lchown($link, 8);
