Bash: Changing Owner of a folder


If you want to change the user owning this file or directory (folder), you will have to use the command chown. For instance, if you run

sudo chown username: myfolder

the user owning myfolder will be username. Then you can execute

sudo chmod u+w myfolder

to add the write permission to the username user.

But if you want to add this user to the group associated with "myfolder", you can run

sudo usermod -a -G groupname username

and then execute

sudo chmod g+w myfolder

to add the write permission to the group.
