SYNOPSIS

chcon [\,OPTION\/]... \,CONTEXT FILE\/...
chcon [\,OPTION\/]... [\,-u USER\/] [\,-r ROLE\/] [\,-l RANGE\/] [\,-t TYPE\/] \,FILE\/...
chcon [\,OPTION\/]... \,--reference=RFILE FILE\/...

DESCRIPTION

Change the SELinux security context of each FILE to CONTEXT. With --reference, change the security context of each FILE to that of RFILE.

Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too.
--dereference
  affect the referent of each symbolic link (this is the default), rather than the symbolic link itself
-h, --no-dereference
  affect symbolic links instead of any referenced file
-u, --user=\,USER\/
  set user USER in the target security context
-r, --role=\,ROLE\/
  set role ROLE in the target security context
-t, --type=\,TYPE\/
  set type TYPE in the target security context
-l, --range=\,RANGE\/
  set range RANGE in the target security context
--no-preserve-root
  do not treat ’/’ specially (the default)
--preserve-root
  fail to operate recursively on ’/’
--reference=\,RFILE\/
  use RFILE’s security context rather than specifying a CONTEXT value
-R, --recursive
  operate on files and directories recursively
-v, --verbose
  output a diagnostic for every file processed
The following options modify how a hierarchy is traversed when the -R option is also specified. If more than one is specified, only the final one takes effect.
-H if a command line argument is a symbolic link to a directory, traverse it
-L traverse every symbolic link to a directory encountered
-P do not traverse any symbolic links (default)
--help display this help and exit
--version
  output version information and exit
