chown

Changes file owner (PHP 4, PHP 5)
bool chown ( string filename, mixed user )

Attempts to change the owner of the file filename to user user. Only the superuser may change the owner of a file.

Parameters

filename

Path to the file.

user

A user name or number.

Return Values

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.

Notes

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.
