How can I change the owner of a file?
To my knowledge only the owner of a file is able to change the preferences (of his/her files).
But how can i change the owner, so that other persons can chage the preferences?
Thanks a lot!
OK, I was wrong. Only owner and root can change the permissions on most of *nix systems.I'm the owner of the file and because of this other persons are not able the change the permissions!
You can change owner/group with SCP protocol and SFTP protocol version 4 and greater. In other words, you cannot change them with SFTP 3 and below (most of the SFTP servers). Read Supported transfer protocols.Hi, On my system I'm the root. But I can't change owner and group. When I open that window, the entries of owner and group are grey.
