I need to change the owner and group of a file or directory in Unix. How do I do this?
You can change the owner and group of a file or directory using a
<changeOwnerAndGroup> action. Because these changes require administrative privileges, you will need to require installation by the administrator. You will have to include a section like the one below inside an action list section of your XML installer project file.
<changeOwnerAndGroup> <files>*/somefile.conf;*/var/somefile</files> <owner>nobody</owner> <group>nobody</group> </changeOwnerAndGroup>
