Linux files are owned by one user owner and one group owner but no more. Using chown you can change the user and group ownership of a file or directory. File and directory ownership can also be set recursively if necessary. Users and groups have to exist before making files owned by them. Their existence can be verified by viewing /etc/passwd and /etc/group.
