Description is a simple perl script that resets the ownership of all files under /home to match the directory names in /home. This script is handy when restoring backups, or fixing problems with file ownership, particularly on a CPanel server.

This script is meant to be run on the command line, as root, in the /home directory. It is not a CGI script, and will not work if not run as root.
