I created a folder structure as root and now need to transfer ownership to an ordinary user.
This question is linked to this one - http://superuser.com/questions/198191/providing-permission-to-specific-user-to-access-nfs-share
I have a folder /srv/app-share that needs to be visible/writeable to user1
I tried (as root):
root@server [/]# chown -R user1:user1 /srv/
But that did not work.
