chown -- Changes file owner


bool chown ( string filename, mixed user )

Attempts to change the owner of the file filename to user user (specified by name or number). Only the superuser may change the owner of a file.

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.

Note: This function will not work on remote files as the file to be examined must be accessible via the servers filesystem.

Note: When safe mode is enabled, PHP checks whether the files or directories you are about to operate on have the same UID (owner) as the script that is being executed.
