Read: In the name of thy Lord Who createth, Createth man from a clot. Read: And thy Lord is the Most Bounteous, Who teacheth by the pen, Teacheth man that which he knew not. Nay, but verily man is rebellious That he thinketh himself independent!. Lo! unto thy Lord is the return. (Sura Alalaq 96:8)

To change the ownership of a symbolic link, we can use the -h switch of the chown command.

For example: chown -h www-data:www-data /var/www/html/folder. The /var/www/html/folder can be created using the ln command. For example: ln -s /srv/folder /var/www/html/folder
