restorecon - restore file(s) default SELinux security contexts.
restorecon [-o outfilename ] [-R] [-n] [-v|-p] [-e directory ]
restorecon -f infilename [-o outfilename ] [-e directory ] [-R] [-n]
This manual page describes the restorecon program.
This program is primarily used to set the security context (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.
It is the same executable as setfiles but operates in a slightly
different manner depending on it's argv.
-i ignore files that do not exist
infilename contains a list of files to be processed by
application. Use - for stdin.
directory to exclude (repeat option for more than one
-R -r change files and directories file labels recursively
-n don't change any file labels.
save list of files with incorrect context in outfilename.
-v show changes in file labels.
-vv show changes in file labels, if type, role, or user are
-p show a progress indication in the form of one dot per 1000
-F Force reset of context to match file_context for customizable
files, or the user section, if it has changed.
-0 Input items are terminated by a null character instead of by
whitespace, and the quotes and backslash are not special (every
character is taken literally). Disables the end of file string,
which is treated like any other argument. Useful when input
items might contain white space, quote marks, or
backslashes.The GNU find -print0 option produces input
suitable for this mode.
pathname... The pathname for the file(s) to be relabeled.
restorecon does not follow symbolic links.
