problem logging into Red Hat 8

When Red hat is tryin to load, i get this error. Could someone tell me how to change the ownership

Server Authorization directory (daemon/ServAuthDir) is set to
/var/gdm but is owned bu user gdm and group gdm. Please
correct the ownership of gdm configuration /etc/x11/gdm/gdm.conf
and restart gdm
