How to use the chown command
my home/container has me as the owner but the contents all belong to root...I've tried >chown cbjhawks /home/cbjhawks but that didnt change anything. Should it be >chown -R cbjhawks /home/cbjhawks? Or what is the proper command for doing this...thanks

#chown -v --recursive username /home/username/*
#chown -v --recursive username /home/username/*.*

#man chown
