Chown for symbolic link
The chown command changes the user ID and/or the group ID of the specified files. Symbolic links named by arguments are silently left unchanged unless -h is used.
Changing the owner of a symbolic link needs special attention. When you use chown the regular way to change the owner of a symbolic link, then you are actually changing the target the symbolic link points to.
To change the owner of a symbolic link only you can use chown with the -h switch:
# chown -h user:group symboliclink
To change the owner of the target the symbolic link points to:
# chown user:group symboliclink
