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 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 con- texts are all as you expect. It is the same executable as setfiles but operates in a slightly different manner depending on it's argv[0]. OPTIONS
-i ignore files that do not exist -f infilename infilename contains a list of files to be processed by application. Use - for stdin. -e directory directory to exclude (repeat option for more than one directory.) -R -r change files and directories file labels recursively -n don't change any file labels. -o outfilename save list of files with incorrect context in outfilename. -p show progress by printing * every 1000 files. -v show changes in file labels. -vv show changes in file labels, if type, role, or user are changing. -p show a progress indication in the form of one dot per 1000 files. -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 char- acter 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. ARGUMENTS
pathname... The pathname for the file(s) to be relabeled. NOTE
restorecon does not follow symbolic links. AUTHOR
