I'm facing some issue with the `chown()` function in PHP and I need some help to understand how it works. I have read the PHP manual, but I'm still a bit confused. Could someone please explain it to me with a simple example?
Here's what I already know about the `chown()` function:
- It is a built-in function in PHP that changes the owner of a file.
- Its syntax is `chown(filename, owner)`.
- It returns `true` on success and `false` on failure.
Now, let me explain the context of my question:
I'm working on a project where I need to change the owner of a file dynamically. Let's say I have a file named "example.txt" and I want to change its owner from the current user to a specific user. Could someone please provide a simple example of how to use the `chown()` function in this scenario?
I would really appreciate it if someone could explain the usage of `chown()` function step-by-step and point out any potential pitfalls or things to consider while using it. Additionally, if there are any other alternative approaches to achieve the same result, I would love to hear about those as well.
Thank you so much in advance for your help!
