NAME

       restorecon - set file security contexts.

SYNOPSIS

       restorecon [-o outfilename ] [-R] [-n] [-v] [-e directory ] pathname...

       restorecon -f infilename [-o outfilename ] [-e directory  ]  [-R]  [-n]
       [-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
       contexts are all as you expect.

OPTIONS

       -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

       -o outfilename
              save list of files with incorrect context in outfilename.

       -vv    show changes  in  file  labels,  if  type,  role,  or  user  are

       -F     Force  reset  of  context to match file_context for customizable
              files
