Easily set permissions on a migrated Home folder
Authored by: gshenaut on Oct 31, '05 01:28:46PM
Another nice way to do this is once you've set up the directory named "user" (i.e., the new user's login name) and the new account, do the following in the shell
cd /Users
sudo chown -R user:group user
where "user:group" are the names of the new user and the new user's group. This is also useful if you have changed a user's UID and/or default GID. If the user and group have the same name (recommended), you can use the euphonious "chown -R user:user user".
