How to change the ownership of multiple accounts under /home via SSH? The option in WHM is a bit tedious.

Solution :

To change the ownership of all accounts to the respective user.user :

cd /home
ls -al | grep root

for i in `ls /var/cpanel/users/`; do chown $i:$i /home/$i ; done
for i in `ls /var/cpanel/users/`; do chown -R $i:$i /home/$i/* ; done

Then change the ownership of the individual public_htmls to their respective user.nobody:

for i in `ls /var/cpanel/users/`; do chown $i:nobody /home/$i/public_html ; done

Change the permissions for public_htmls to 750:

for i in `ls /var/cpanel/users/`; do chmod 750 /home/$i/public_html ; done

Fix the permissions for mail to work fine:


Fix the ownership of /home:

chown root.root /home
