NAME

restorecon - restore file(s) default SELinux security contexts.

 

SYNOPSIS

restorecon [-o outfilename ] [-R] [-n] [-p] [-v] [-e directory ] pathname... restorecon -f infilename [-o outfilename ] [-e directory ] [-R] [-n] [-p] [-v] [-F]

 

DESCRIPTION

This manual page describes the restorecon program. This program is primarily used to reset the security context (type) (extended attributes) on one or more files. It can be run at any time to correct errors, to add support for new policy, or with the -n option it can just check whether the file contexts are all as you expect. If a file object does not have a context, restorecon will write the default context to the file object's extended attributes. If a file object has a context, restorecon will only modify the type portion of the security context. The -F option will force a replacement of the entire context.
