Changing ownership of a symlink
While changing the ownership for the symbolic link the command
[root@server ~]# chown -R user.user link_path
will not work. It will not allow you to change the ownership of the symbolic link.
Use following command in order to change the ownership for a symbolic link
[root@server ~]# chown -h user.user link_path
Now you can change the ownership of a symbolic link.
